Memorial Day Weekend 2017

Devil’s Lake Climbing Guides partners with Wilderness Medical Associates to offer a 5-day Wilderness First Responder Course (WFR) over Memorial Day weekend. The WFR certification is the gold-standard in medical certifications for outdoor enthusiasts and professionals. Typically offered in a 8-day format, the 5-day Wilderness First Responder course requires students to undertake an increased amount of reading and homework prior to the classroom portion of the course. In exchange, students will complete the course in much less time, making it easier for those with busy schedules to attend. For complete curriculum details, please see the Wilderness Medical Associates website.
