First Responder Wilderness Training in Davidson, QC

Considered to be the “de facto” international standard for wilderness trip leaders and professional guides, the Wilderness First Responder is complete medical training for anyone tripping or working in remote environments. The WFR curriculum uses the principles of long-term patient care, improvised resources and varying environmental conditions as the framework for learning.

The WFR course is fast paced and both physically and mentally challenging. It was created to provide outdoor leaders and guides with the knowledge and skills necessary to deal with crises in remote settings, the WFR course meets and exceeds all licensing standards in Canada and most DOT (Department of Transportation) standards in the US for outdoor guides/professionals and emergency care givers.

Wilderness First Responder – Wilderness First Aid Certification is valid for 3 years and includes AHA Health Care Provider (HCP) CPR.
