The Hybrid Wilderness First Responder (H-WFR) course provides medical skills to individuals working or playing in a remote or wilderness setting. This course offers the skills and confidence needed to provide medical care when evacuation is hours or days away. The WFR includes short lectures, interactive labs, and realistic practice scenarios that train students to improvise with limited resources in remote environments. The course combines 20-30 hours of online coursework with five days of on-site training.
Designed for the outdoor guide, Remote Site Team Lead or Military Team Lead, the H-WFR includes a range of introductory medical skills and topics, including patient assessment, lifting and moving patients, cold and heat emergencies, altitude, immersion, submersion, lightning, legal considerations, and more. Students also learn how to effectively manage basic wounds, infection, shock, head injuries, spinal injuries, respiratory and cardiac emergencies, abdominal pain, metabolic and allergic reactions, and altered mental states, for up to eight hours until a higher level of care can arrive. This course is designed to prepare the student in leading and managing a group of individuals who are not medically trained or have basic medical knowledge to assist them in managing a complex patient.
