Oh, You want to be a Wilderness First Responder?

Let’s get something straight; the first rule of Wilderness First Responder Training is that you don’t talk about Wilderness First Responder Training.

That said, the rule is more about the “secrets” that make each individual program unique, like specifics about scenarios and whatnot. We’re not really going to get into that here, out of respect to the programs, but I do want to give you a couple tastes of what you might be biting off when you do decide to take the course. And yes, there really is blood, and a good bit of it throughout the course. It’s fake blood, but blood nonetheless! 

I took the National Outdoor Leadership Schools (NOLS) curriculum at the Landmark Learning campus in the western North Carolina mountains. There are many other curriculum and programs out there, but NOLS seems to float to the top as the industry standard based on what I’ve seen over the years. But know that you do have other options out there, and that different certifications may carry different weight. (Read: Do your research!)


Nine days of knowledge bombs, scenarios, new friendships, and adventures is way too much to pack into one video or post! You’ll need to check out all of them to get the whole picture! Check out all of the articles through the links below!
