Wilderness Medicine Training
We offer nationally recognized certifications in Wilderness First Aid (WFA), Wilderness First Responder (WFR), Wilderness EMT (WEMT), and Wilderness Advanced First Aid (WAFA) through the Wilderness Medicine Training Center International (WMTC). OER is a licensed provider of wilderness medicine courses through the Wilderness Medicine Training Center (WMTC). WMTC curriculum is based on practice guidelines established by the Wilderness Medical Society and scope of practice documents written by the Wilderness Medicine Education Collaborative (WMEC.) WMTC’s hands-on approach to preventing, assessing, and treating common wilderness injuries and illnesses utilizes skill labs, lectures, demonstrations, and simulations.
Experienced in both classroom and field-based instruction in outdoor education, we can provide intentional and engaging learning opportunities. Whether you need an additional instructor on an existing course or trip, or someone to design and implement specific curriculum for your program, we would enjoy working with you. Contact us about your needs, goals, and intended outcomes.
Outdoor Education Consulting
While wilderness medicine training is a majority of what we do, we also offer program consulting services. Having designed and been a part of outdoor programs across the U.S. and over the past two decades, we’ve seen a lot! If you’re thinking about starting a new program or fine-tuning an existing one, we’d be excited to chat with you to understand your program and help develop a plan for next steps.
