How to recertify your WFR or WEMT online during the age of COVID

Currently certified graduates of an approved wilderness medicine provider may register for Part 1 of WMTC’s WFR & WEMT Recertification course. Once the online portion of the course is completed,a provisional WFR or WEMT certification card may be downloaded; the certification expires one year from the date they registered for Part 1.

To complete the certification process and receive an additional two-year certification, complete WMTC’s Part 2 practical session before their provisional certification expires. See below for courses provided by Southwest Rescue.
