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.

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.
