Course Description

L.L.Bean has partnered with Wilderness Medical Associates, a respected leader in wilderness medical education since 1981, to bring you this three-day (24-hour) WFR recertification course open to graduates of all WFR courses 64 hours or longer. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be certified as a Wilderness Medical Associates WFR.

Day one will begin with a review of the course's comprehensive study packet. You'll then work on reviewing patient assessment systems (PAS), including basic life support, circulatory/respiratory/nervous systems and lifts, moves, and extrication drills.

On day two, you will study musculoskeletal injuries, dislocations, spine management, plus wound and burn care. PAS drills will give you the opportunity to test your assessment skills. Then you'll practice splinting extremities and spines in various incident simulations.

Day three will cover allergies, anaphylaxis, environmental injuries, PAS drills and more simulations, preparing you for the course's final exam.

All necessary equipment, including course materials, is provided. Successful completion of the course requires full attendance and satisfactory performance on written and practical quizzes. Itinerary subject to change at instructors' discretion.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

**Course materials will be emailed to you after registration.
