Wilderness First Responder

I recently completed an intensive 10 day WFR (Wilderness First Responder) course from NOLS Wilderness Medicine (a long time bucket list item). Alongside lifesaving backcountry skills and certifications, NOLS puts heavy emphasis on leadership, team building, risk/crisis management, and effective improvisation with constrained resources. I met an incredible group of people from around the world preparing to lead wilderness trips, multi year global sailing expeditions, search and rescue operations and more. If you have the time and opportunity I highly recommend checking out what NOLS has to offer!
