When do I need to recertify?

  •  Wilderness First Responder certifications are valid for two years following completion of the course. Students with a two-year certification term from Remote Medical International have a one-year grace period to recertify. During the grace period, students are not considered valid providers.
  • Remote Medical International offers reciprocity with other remote and wilderness medical training companies. You can recertify with RMI if you took your original course from another organization upon pre-approval. Individuals who have been certified by another organization will receive a certification card from RMI upon successful completion of the WFR recertification course.
