About the Certification
Students who successfully complete the Wilderness First Responder course will receive a Wilderness First Responder card and an American Heart Association Adult Heartsaver CPR card (or equivalent). Certification is based on successful completion of the course. In order to do so, all certification candidates are required to participate in 100% of the course, as that is the best way to assess mastery of the skills involved. Instructors provide ongoing feedback and many opportunities for questions. Final assessment of each student's skills includes written and practical exams. Certification will be through Discover Outdoors, taught to the standard of the Wilderness Medical Society, American Safety and Health Institute, and Emergency Care and Safety Institute.
