Recertify Disaster + Travel + Wilderness First Aid (WFA)

Recertify Basic Wilderness First Aid (BWFA) or WRFA

 

Disaster + Travel + Wilderness First Aid (WFA) Recertification

  • Certification lasts 2 years

    • Unless one consistently reviews and practices the WFA material at least monthly, one tends to lose most of the information and many of the hands-on skills by the time the 2-year certification comes to an end.
  • Re-certification:  the full WFA course ~ Register here

    • The WFA course is as compact as it possibly can be ... so to recertify and continue to be hands-on able to render so many different types of emergency care, taking the full course is necessary.
    • The 2nd, 3rd+ time taking the class:
      • The basics will come back to you quickly, enabling you to focus more on the finer details of high-quality care
      • SOLO and partner organizations are continuously advancing state-of-the-art, evidence-based, disaster + wilderness medical science
      • MEDIC is continuously learning from parent SOLO and partner organization developments, as well as from leading outdoor expeditions ... incorporating cutting-edge information into its classes
      • Here are just a few quotes from students who took MEDIC's WFA class more than once:
        • "Taking the WFA for the second time has been very rewarding. There's much more intimacy with the material and practices when you've had an opportunity to experience it before."

           -Joe D., May 2011

           

        • "I learned even more taking it this second time."

          - John Holden, manager of Blue Ridge Mountain Sports, 10/25/2009. 

          • John went on to take MEDIC's class a 3rd time, which then led to BRMS sponsoring MEDIC to teach in all BRMS communities.
          • The 4th time John took it, in response to "Did this course meet your expectations?", he wrote on 1/12/2014:  "Far exceeded, even after taking it 3x before.  Got better, more material, learned more!"

           

        • "It was even better the second time around."

          - Anonymous student feedback, January 2013

           

        • "This is my 2nd time taking Matt's course. My goal was to develop a stronger level of comfort & confidence w/ the techniques. It was definitely better the 2nd time around. I'd highly recommend taking the course multiple times."
