About This Course
Renew your Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification completely online at your pace and save time and money while reviewing each topic to its fullest. By the end of this course, you will be recertified and a much more knowledgeable wilderness medical provider.
Time limit for this course: Self-Paced
The only time limit for this course is to complete the final exam before your certification or grace period expires. After you complete the final exam you will have access to the course and to any new lectures or updates for the duration of your certification (two years). This will allow you to always be in the know about the latest in wilderness medicine.
Proof of previous WFR certification must be submitted upon enrolling in this course.
All WFR certifications from other wilderness educational organizations are accepted.
Current CPR certification is NOT required to take this course; however, our WFR certification is only valid with current CPR certification.
Base Medical offers a remote, online CPR course for your convenience and safety.
My certification expired. Do you have a grace period?
Our grace period for an expired WFR is 1 year from the expiration date on the certification.
In accordance to the Wilderness Medicine - Blended Learning Standards, Base Medical implements an alternating cycle of hands-on recertification to online recertification. This alternating cycle requirement means that students must participate in hands-on training every other recertification cycle. Hybrid courses qualify as hands-on training participation.
Base Medical offers both Hands-On WFR Recertification and Remote WFR Recertification, both of which qualify as hands-on training.

Important Note: You can begin the online course as soon as you enroll. Access to the online final exam to receive certification is granted 8 days after enrollment. This delay is to allow time for course administration to review the validity of all submitted certifications.
Want hands-on practice too? No problem!
In addition to the online recertification course, students now have the opportunity to practice their hands-on skills with live remote scenarios guided by a Base Medical Certified Instructor.

"I have to admit I was dubious of the online format but I appreciate the care and effort that went into creating the WFR recert. As always, you'll want to practice skills regularly, in person. This really helped me when I was in a pinch between geographic location and timing for recertification."
"I was really worried because in my area there is no where I can go to get a Re certification. The closest locations are normally a days drive away and I didn't gave the time for that. So I searched for anything else that I could find to do my re certification and found Base Medical. I wasn't sure at first, but it was about my only option and I needed it done. The course material was very well done, the testing did an amazing job of reminding you of what was important, and I could go at my own pace. I think they went over some of the material better than the hands on courses I have taken at times. Thank you so much for creating this for those like me who don't have the option of doing hands on training. "
"I enjoyed the course overall! Having access to a 100% online re-cert is amazing and the information presented was clear and relevant. Thank you!"
