Wilderness First Responder

The 80 hour Wilderness First Responder covers more than the core topics in the Wilderness First Aid and Wilderness Advanced First Aid classes. But the key difference after this class is your confidence. You will have practiced and practiced and practiced. This class usually has 3 full days of outdoor scenarios in addition to mini scenarios and skills practices every session. Successful completion of class includes a 3 year Wilderness First Responder and a 2 year CPR for the Professional Rescuer certificates.

The Wilderness First Responder is the industry standard for those who want a career in outdoor recreation and guiding. And this is also an amazing experience for those who spend time with friends in the outdoors.

The class will involve 10, 8 hour days with one day off ( January 12) After class you will need to read, do homework and also practice skills.

This class is being offered by Foster Calm, which has been teaching in the Bay Area since 2001.
