Wilderness First Responder (WFR)

The Syracuse University Outing Club (SUOC) is hosting a Wilderness First Responder certification class May 12-20, 2014.

The cost for this class is $450 and we are currently taking registrations. The cost of the class only covers registration, and does not include any food or lodging. You will be responsible for this individually. This certification course is open to Non SUID Card Holders also. Please contact Scott Catucci at of you are registering and do not have an SU/ESF ID#

The class will be held in the Skybarn, located on the South Campus of Syracuse University (151 Farm Acre Rd. Syracuse, NY 13210). The WFR is 80 hours long and is a comprehensive and in-depth look at the standards and skills of dealing with:

-         Response and Assessment
-         Musculoskeletal Injuries
-         Environmental Emergencies and Survival Skills
-         Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies

Although these appear to be the same basic topics covered in a two-day WFA course, they are covered far more extensively, and there is much more hands-on practice. Additional topics, such as CPR, are also included.

The Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course is the recognized industry standard for those who work as backcountry trip leaders, camp counselors, mountain guides,river guides, and ski patrollers. The WFR is the perfect course for anyone working in a position of leadership in an outdoor setting or for individuals who want a high level of wilderness medical training for extended personal back-country trips or expeditions.
