The Wilderness First Responder [WFR] is the golden standard the world over in first-aid education for outdoor professionals. Icelandic Mountain Guides have sins 2015 worked with NOLS USA in the very best in first aid education to Reykjavík Iceland.
The WFR course is designed to provide you with the tools to make critical medical and evacuation decisions in remote locations. Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning.
Learning takes place both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather conditions. Come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments.
All courses are taught by highly skilled instructors from NOLS Wilderness Medicine and in English – it is safe to say that a higher quality of teaching and first aid education will be hard to find!
No previous first aid training is required. You must be 16 years old to attend this course.
Participants are required to pass both written and practical examinations to obtain WFR and CPR certification. Successful course completion earns you a WMI Adult & Child CPR certification and a WMI Wilderness First Responder certification.
