Wilderness First Responder Course

Hosted by OMSI + NOLS Wilderness Medicine. This nationally recognized 10 day course will teach you how to respond to emergencies in a backcountry setting.
If you work or recreate in the outdoors or in other austere environments where access to medical care is delayed or communication is unreliable, the NOLS 10-day Wilderness First Responder course is for you! It is the industry standard for professional guides, trip leaders, search and rescue team members, outdoor recreationists, and international travelers. Upon completion, you will be able to conduct a thorough physical exam, obtain a patient history, assess vital signs, provide emergency care in the wilderness, and make crucial evacuation decisions. You'll learn both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather, so come prepared for wet, muddy, cold, or hot environments!

OMSI price includes the course tuition, plus 10 days of overnight lodging and meals each day of the course at Hancock Field Station.
