  Course FR–SRFreshmen - Senior 4 04 Day, Evening and Weekend Su 13Summer Session II Wilderness First Responder (WFR), taught by the Wilderness Medicine Training Center, is designed specifically to meet the needs of wilderness guides, trip leaders, and outdoor enthusiasts. It is the outdoor recreation industry's standard for wilderness medical training. This program emphasizes a variety of problems that might be encountered in a wilderness setting, including trauma, hypothermia, allergies, lightning, infections, and asthma. While the focus remains on expedition medicine, the information and skills learned in the WFR can be directly applied to other emergency medical situations where ambulances and advanced medical care are not available such as disaster relief and international travel. This is a hands-on program that utilizes both the classroom and outdoors to teach effective patient care, at least 50% of the course will take place outside in a variety of environmental conditions, students should be able to walk for 1/2 hour with a backpack and lift 50 lbs. Students who successfully complete the course will receive nationally recognized WFR and CPR certification. Joel Reid Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sun Freshmen FR Sophomore SO Junior JR Senior SR Summer Summer
