SGI - Tactical Training

SGI - Wilderness First Responder (WFR)

[Course Fee = $1,295.00 ]


(9 Days / 76 hours)

SGI has teamed up with Longleaf Wilderness Medicine to present this series of courses at our Regional Training Center in Riverside, CA. The 76-hour Wilderness First Responder course is the industry standard for people who may have to respond to medical emergencies in remote environments. 

The Wilderness First Responder certification is the recognized industry standard for people who work in remote environments in jobs that include wilderness guides and trip leaders, camp counselors, research expedition members, and search and rescue team members.

Who should take a WFR course?

WFR courses are designed to meet the needs of individuals who have a leadership role in a wilderness setting.  It is also an excellent option for individuals who are seeking intensive medical training in order to be prepared during personal wilderness trips or extended expeditions. The course is also for medical professionals seeking ways to apply their skills outside of the clinic setting, as well as people who live in areas that are prone to natural disasters whose aftermath may delay emergency response.

What topics are covered during the course?

Topics in the 76-hour class include: patient assessment, how to provide long-term care with limited resources, the decision of when to call for more help, and treatments such as splinting, wound care and managing spine injuries. The course schedule includes classroom time, as well as extensive hands-on skills practice through medical scenarios and labs.  The WFR course does include an in-depth final scenario as well as a written exam.
