Emergency Medical Responder Bridge Course

Emergency Medical Responder Bridge Course

Qualify for your National Registry Emergency Medical Responder (NR-EMR) written test with this online class. Several federal agencies may require you to have Emergency Medical Responder certification as an employee, and this bridge course covers the EMR topics that aren't addressed in a Wilderness First Responder course.

To take this course you must already have a current WFR certification from NOLS Wilderness Medicine. You can complete this online training at any point within one year of completing your NOLS Wilderness Medicine WFR course or WFR recertification. You must also possess a current Professional Level CPR card.

This online course consists of videos, readings, and quizzes, and allows you to follow your own self-directed timetable. Complete the different components in the sequence that works best for you and make it fit your own schedule!

After finishing the bridge course, you will receive authorization to schedule your National Registry Emergency Medical Responder (NR-EMR) written test at a time and location of your choosing.

“I am in the ‘wilderness’ less frequently than others due to my primary work schedule, however I constantly carry medical gloves and a permanent marker with me—just in case. This course fundamentally changed the way I see the world, and the awareness I now bring to every situation.”

- Emily A., WFR
