Trip Info

We offer Wilderness First Responder certification and recertification classes for outdoor professionals and enthusiasts. This course is taught in conjunction with Wilderness Medical Associates of Maine.

Wilderness First Responder

As an outdoor person you may find yourself in a situation where help is more than a phone call away. Typical first aid courses train students to provide care before an ambulance arrives. This course is designed for people who often travel where dialing 911 is not an option. It is experiential and tough, with emphasis on practical sessions and video taped simulations using mock victims. This course runs seven days. 

WFR Recertification/Challenge

For folks who need to keep their WFR certification up to date. This course is an intensive review and retesting of the WFR curriculum with a CPR update and other updates where protocols or treatment options may have changed. This course runs three days.

"I have taken a number of WFR recerts at Zoar over the years, I have always been impressed with the efficiency of the reservation process, the professionalism of the staff but, I think most importantly, the welcoming nature of the organization. It has the feel of a small company though it obviously serves hundreds of clients."
