Wilderness, Remote & Disaster First Response

A Wilderness First Responder Certification via a Hybrid Virtual Instructor-Led Course

About this Course

This Hybrid Virtual Instructor-Led Course is the very same NASAR Wilderness First Responder course you would traditionally attend in person, however, adapted to be largely virtually presented while minimizing as much as we could the in-person presence.
This Course will be virtually conducted via Zoom Lectures along with discussions and further course work on Facebook in a Private Group. There will be 2 in-person Skills Sessions to bring together the knowledge and put skills into practice.


Lectures will be on Tuesdays and Thursday from 6:30pm to 9:30pm via Zoom

Course Officially Start Tuesday, October 13th, 2020
Mid-Term Skills Session, Saturday & Sunday, November 7-8th
Final Skills Session, Saturday & Sunday, December 5-8
Course Ends following Written Exam, December 8
