Instructor Led Courses

The DELMARVA Search and Rescue Group currently has 2 American Safety and Health Institute approved instructors on staff.  We are able to offer classes of interest to SAR and CERT groups.

Wilderness Emergency Care (WEC)
Our group can offer three levels of Wilderness Emergency Care:

Wilderness First Aid

Wilderness First Aid is a 16-20 hour course for those who do more serious wilderness activities. It is the choice of many wilderness trip leaders and guides. WFA presents wilderness topics in more detail, provides more time for skills practice, and also includes role-playing wilderness accident scenarios.

Wilderness First Responder

Wilderness First Responder is a 60-80 hour course for wilderness professionals and others who want a higher level of training, or require WFR certification. The course length may vary depending on whether the class has previous training, or does enough reading and preparation to reduce the need for lecture. Skills training is intensive, with many role-playing wilderness accident scenarios.

Wilderness EMT Upgrade

Wilderness EMT Upgrade is a 40-hour course for those who are already certified as EMTs.  The course builds on EMT training and adds wilderness concepts and skills, with many role-playing scenarios.
