      Wilderness First Responder
      A COP Leadership Path Course

      December 15 - 22
      Pre-requisite: Currrent CPR Certification

      Created to provide outdoor leaders, guides, and rangers with the knowledge to deal with crises in remote situations, this course provides 72 hours of intensive training, culminating in certification that meets all DOT National Standards for First Responder with additional protocols for extended care situations.

      WFR is the most widely recognized and most often required outdoor leader certification. In addition, the Wilderness First Responder can also serve as Part 1 of the Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician (WEMT) certification, provided WEMT Part 2 instruction is completed within one year.

      COP is partnering with a SOLO instructor and the OSU Office of Student Life Department of Recreational Sports to present this course.

      This intensive 72-hr course takes place over 8 days. A typical day consists of a mixture of hands-on practical skill work and didactic lecture sessions. To optimize learning potentials, SOLO complements these sessions with a variety of mock scenarios and simulations. The program is fast-paced and both intellectually and physically demanding.

      Students who successfully complete the SOLO Wilderness First Responder course will receive a SOLO Wilderness First Responder card. Certification is based on successful completion of the course. In order to do so, all certification candidates are required to participate in 100% of the course. SOLO instructors provide ongoing feedback and many opportunities for questions. Final assessment includes written and practical exams.

      Location: OSU Outdoor Adventure Center
      110A ARC, 855 Woody Hayes Drive, Columbus, OH 43210

      The Outdoor Adventure Center Conference Room inside Adventure Recreation Center (ARC Bld #211). A note about parking at the ARC CampusParc is a private firm that manages all aspects of parking at Ohio State. Your most affordable option as a visitor is to purchase a remote (West Campus) surface lot pass, which costs $11.25 for a month (good for 30 days).  Because the class is held during “off-peak” hours, i.e. the weekend, you can park just outside the ARC without fear of a fine.  Information about purchasing a parking permit for visitors can be found here. On the first day of class, we can help direct you to the best option for parking, but if you are buying a permit, we recommend doing so before arriving.

      The OAC can also host indoor “camping” at our facility. Those who elect this option may stay at the OAC and have access to showers and food storage/preparation areas. There is no cost for this option, but reservation must be made prior to the start of class. Specific rules of conduct and access will be covered for those who choose to take the option.

      Course Fees:
           $495/COP members

      Certification Requirements: You must:
       - Participate in all sessions and pass the exam.

       - Be physically able to complete the class work

       - Be 16 years or older. If you are under 18, a legal 
           guardian must sign the COP Liability Release also.

      Contact office@outdoor-pursuits.org or 614/442-7901 with questions.

      Parts of the class are taught outdoors, so be prepared to be outside no matter what the weather. Go to the SOLO website for the complete course description, www.soloschools.com/
