    The Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Bridge course upgrades the Wilderness Advanced First Aid to a WFR in 4 days. If you work or recreate on the land or in communities where access to medical care is delayed or communication is unreliable, this course is for you! It is the industry standard for professional guides, trip leaders, search and rescue team members, outdoor recreationists, and international travelers. 

    This course will be taught by Trevor McGarry. For more information: https://www.wildmed.com/instructor/trevor-mcgarry/
