OE 2430 - Wilderness First Responder


This course is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to handle medical emergency situations found in remote locations. Students will develop an awareness of the responsibility they will have of people in their care and themselves. The ability to determine the appropriate treatment and care needed for a patient in a wilderness setting is tested through two Mock Rescues. The course will place emphasis on preventative steps and decision making in a wilderness emergency situation. This course utilizes the true intent of experiential education by providing experiences that build upon prior knowledge until the concepts are adequately grasped. WRF Certification is granted by maintaining a grade of B or higher and demonstrating skills through the weekly practical simulation. This course is great for students who are OE majors or looking to develop wilderness medicine skills for excursions in the backcountry.  This course follows the Stonehearth Open Learning Opportunities (SOLO) curriculum.  SOLO is the oldest international wilderness medicine school. Prerequisites: 30 credits/2nd year status. Offered fall semesters even years. (4 Credits) Certification fees.
