Wilderness First Responder Bridge is a stepping stone or “bridge” for graduates of our 40-hour Wilderness Advanced First Aid courses who want to upgrade their training to Wilderness First Responder (80 hour) level.
This comprehensive course will review concepts learned in earlier training and provide a greater emphasis on evacuation, environmental topics, critical thinking, and leadership.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be issued an 80-hour Wilderness First Responder Certification, which is the standard-of-care for outdoor adventure professionals.
