Topics include patient assessment, wound management, realigning fractures and dislocations, improvised splinting, and environmental emergencies. Students receive current updates in the wilderness medicine field that are critical to the proper assessment and treatment of injuries and illnesses. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a two-year NOLS Wilderness Medicine WFR certification and a two-year NOLS Wilderness Medicine adult and child CPR certification. Wilderness EMTs (WEMTs) may also use this course to re-certify (wilderness portion only).
