COVID-19 & Travel Considerations:
The State of Montana's travel restrictions will be lifted as of June 1 so out of state students no longer need to quarantine before beginning an Aerie course which starts after June 1.
Wilderness First Responder Refresher
Oct 10, 2020
Course Description: Aerie has changed its two-day, in-person WFR recertification courses into a one-day, online recertification course. These recerts will provide students with the information covered during the didactic and skill-demonstration portions of the typical refresher course, and will update them with vital changes and trends that have occurred during the last two years, including changes to the management of cardiac arrest, hypothermia, general trauma, anaphylaxis and heat illness. These certifications will be good for one year from date of issue and will be generated once all gear is received back to the Aerie office at 100 N Ave W Missoula, MT 59801.
Schedule: 9:00am – 6:00pm MST This course will be done as an interactive Zoom course. The information for the Zoom link and the outline of the course will be sent out the week of the course. If you are somewhere that you do not have access to the internet and the ability to utilize Zoom, this course will not be an option for you.
Course Cost: $125 (plus shipping fees if not local). Aerie Alumni discount does not apply to the online courses. This course is currently ½ the price of the original course but gear is required to participate in this course. If you are not local to Missoula, MT and unable to pick up gear at the set time from our office then you will be charged an additional shipping fee. There will be no certifications given out until all gear is returned to the Aerie office in the same condition in which it was received. (shipping fees vary on location. They can range from $10-$50 one way.)
Gear Pick-Up at the Aerie Office: The Wednesday prior to the course starting you will need to pick up the required gear from the Aerie office at: 100 N Ave W Missoula, MT 59801. Gear pick up will be between 10:00am-12:00pm. If you are unable to pick up during these times then we will charge you the additional shipping fee to send it to you.
Gear Drop Off at the Aerie Office: The Monday after your course you will need to drop off the required gear at the Aerie office: 100 N Ave W Missoula, MT 59801. Gear drop off will be between 10:00am-12:00pm. If you are not able to drop off during these times you will need to ship it back to the office location above and that expense will be yours to cover.
Again, receipt of certification is contingent upon all gear being returned in the same condition in which it was received.
