Wilderness First Responder Recertification

February 22 - 24
Instructor: Wilderness Medicine Institute Staff
Hike Level: 1
Fee: $330.00 GCA Member; $335.00 non member

Taught by expert instructors from the Wilderness Medicine Institute (a program of the National Outdoor Leadership School), this class teaches participants the standards for urban and wilderness care situations, and emphasizes decision making and injury prevention. Some of the topics covered include CPR, dehydration and heat-related injuries, shock, spine and head trauma, musculoskeletal injuries, wound management, environmental emergencies and common expedition problems.

Most of the instruction takes place in a classroom setting or in nearby wooded areas. A practical exam will be conducted in a remote area of the park during a simulated rescue operation. Free group camping throughout the event is provided for all participants, and free Wi-Fi is available at various locations in the immediate area.

Note: This three-day skills-based class is for individuals who are current Wilderness First Responders with a valid certification through WMI, SOLO, NOLS, WMA or WPT. Those with expired certifications are required to take the full 80-hour Wilderness First Responder in order to recertify.

Special accommodations have been arranged for participants including complimentary camping at Mather Campground.
Park Entrance Fee is waived.
Wi-Fi available in Grand Canyon Village.
General Store, Post Office, Restaurants, Bank and Showers may be found in Grand Canyon Village.
