WHAT IS TAUGHT?
The WFR is 72-80 hours long and is a comprehensive and in-depth look at the standards and skills of dealing with: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies and Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies.
Although these appear to be the same basic topics covered in our two-day WFA course, they are covered far more extensively, and there is much more hands-on practice. Additional topics, such as CPR, are also included.
For a complete list of topics, visit the SOLO WFR webpage.
IS THERE AN EXAM?
There is ongoing evaluation of practical skills, and a written test.
DO I GET CERTIFIED?
Yes. Your SOLO WFR certification is good for three years.
HOW DO I RECERTIFY?
You may take either a 2-day WFR Refresher Course or a 2-day WFA course.
