Mon, Jan 16, 2017 9:00 am

Taught by long-time industry leader and curriculum developer Russ Miller with Wilderness Safety Consultants. Wilderness EMR (updated version of WFR) is the definitive course and certification in medical training for outdoor educators, guides, SAR team members, and others who work or play in remote areas.

Class will meet for 2 weekends (9 AM - 5 PM each day) and then have one final day for final certification testing.

The curriculum includes class time and scenarios which incorporates all the essential skills to assess and manage medical problems in the backcountry. The course will cover and meet all standard W-EMR criteria, but it is designated for students and professionals who have tight schedules.

Course cost is $285 and will meet at Ijams Nature Center. To sign up, please contact Benjy Darnell at bdarnell@ijams.org. Registration ends Jan.5.
