This is the standard Wilderness First Responder course in a 5-day format for those with less time available and hectic schedules (Requires 25 hours of precourse preparation).
Students will have access to the WFR Study Guide two to four weeks before the course starts. They are required to complete the assigned reading, case studies, study guide, and tests.
Because students are expected to arrive familiar with the material, on-site daytime training will focus on wilderness and rescue scenarios and practical skills. Evenings are reserved for study and assignments.
Expect rescue scenarios with made-up victims and simulated wounds to prepare you for backcountry emergencies. Sessions may be videotaped for enhanced learning.
All eligible students who successfully complete the course will receive Wilderness First Responder, Anaphylaxis, and Healthcare Provider level CPR certifications.
All necessary equipment, including course materials, is provided.
L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.
