Hybrid Wilderness First Responder

If you work or recreate in the outdoors or in other austere environments where access to medical care is delayed or communication is unreliable, our Hybrid Wilderness First Responder (HWFR) course is for you.  Our new hybrid format begins with three weeks of online learning including readings, videos, and quizzes. You will spend 10 to 15 hours each week in the online portion and be required to finish assignments to progress. You will complete your course with a 5-day in-person program focusing on skills and scenarios.

NOLS Wilderness Medicine’s curriculum encompasses a wide range of topics including long-term patient care, wound management, straightening angulated fractures, reducing dislocations, litter packaging and administering medications. You’ll complete this course with the tools and confidence to manage patients in the backcountry for multiple days. The intensive 80-hour curriculum is nationally recognized and supported by NOLS Wilderness Medicine’s Medical Advisory Panel.
