Wilderness First Responder Course

Taught by NOLS Wilderness Medicine at Holden Village

Come join us for an exciting and challenging course in the wilderness of the North Cascades of Washington. We have it all – mountains, rivers, trees, snow, wind, sun, remoteness – plus a comfortable bed and great food for when you’re tired after full days of learning, practicing, studying, and creatively solving problems with your fellow classmates.

This 80-hour course is the industry standard for professional guides, trip leaders, search and rescue team members, outdoor recreationists, and international travelers. Certifications: Wilderness First Responder, Adult and Child CPR & Airway Management, and Epinephrine Auto-injector.
