How to recertify your WFR or WEMT online during the pandemic

WMTC is acutely aware that few in-person recertification courses are available this fall and winter and that some WFR & WEMT graduates need their certification to work this winter and spring. To address this issue, currently certified graduates of an approved wilderness medicine provider may register for Part 1 of WMTC’s WFR & WEMT Recertification course. Once they complete the online portion of the course, they will be able to download a provisional WFR or WEMT certification card; the certification expires one year from the time they registered for Part 1.

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