You will notice on the patch to the left that Colorado Wilderness Emergency Medicine Institute (C.W.E.M.I.) is changing the long standing Wilderness First Responder designation to that of Wilderness Emergency Medical Responder (WEMR) to align the program with the N.H.T.S.A. national guidelines with Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) which replaced the First Responder designation in urban medicine.

This 80 hour course is designed for wilderness professionals that lead trips or spend time in the wilderness where medical care is more than an hour away. This course is also great for field workers in remote locations. If you are a trip leader, guide, professional rescuer, member of a search and rescue team or planning an extensive wilderness trip then this course if a must have.
