JOIN TRAIN NEK IN BEAUTIFUL VERMONT TO REFRESH YOUR WILDERNESS FIRST RESPONDER THROUGH SOLO*!

WHERE: Peacham

WHEN: Monday and Tuesday, July 13 and 14, 2020, 9:00 am – 6:00 pm, Peacham, Vermont

HOW MUCH: Tuition for all WFR Recerts is $215, or $255 with the optional evening CPR included.

FOR WHOM: This course is designed for (and only offered to) students whose current WFR certification from the following organizations is due to expire: SOLO, Wilderness Medical Associates, Wilderness Medicine Institute, University of Vermont, Aerie Backcountry Medicine, ASHI, Wilderness Medicine Outfitters, Wilderness Medicine Training Center, and Remote Medical International. SOLO does not currently have reciprocity with any other training organizations.

Wilderness First Responder (WFR) is a three-year certification. (After three recertifications, students are advised to re-take a full WFR course, particularly if you are not active in the field.) This course does not include CPR but there will be an optional CPR course at the end of the first day for an additional $40. CPR is required to keep your WFR certification.

OPTIONS FOR REGISTERING:

SAVE MONEY! REGISTER BY SENDING US A NOTE INCLUDING COURSE TITLE AND DATES, STUDENT NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS, AND A CHECK FOR $215 ($255 WITH CPR) TO TRAIN NEK, PO BOX 132, PEACHAM, VT 05862.

OR

REGISTER ONLINE THROUGH EVENTBRITE (ADDITIONAL EVENTBRITE FEE APPLIES).

WHAT IS INCLUDED? Course fee of $215 includes instruction, training materials, and SOLO WFA certification fee. SOLO Basic CPR will be offered as an optional adjunct at the end of Day One for an additional $40 including certification and materials. Certification is good for two years, and you recertify by taking the course again. The WFA can also be used to recertify the SOLO Wilderness First Responder*.

WHAT IS TAUGHT? This intensive two-day course covers the standard WFR curriculum as well as new wilderness protocols. The WFR Recertification is fast-paced, incorporating a traditional classroom session with hands-on practical skills scenarios to help you maintain the confidence to make critical medical decisions in a wilderness setting.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING? WFR Refresher students are asked to bring clothing suitable for getting dirty and appropriate for being active outside (i.e. rolling around on the ground pretending to be injured, and kneeling next to mock patients) for much of each day, in any kind of weather . They should also bring additional outdoor layers to use for warming and treating patients. Lodging and meals are not included. A complete packing list and directions are sent to students upon registration.

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you.
