WMI graduates may take a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course to recertify their WAFA, WFR or WEMT. The Wilderness First Aid course is an introductory course for individuals with no prior knowledge and generally does not include CPR. You may choose to take a Wilderness First Aid course to recertify your WAFA, WFR, or WEMT, but only if you hold a certification from WMI. Participants using the WFA to recertify need to pass both a written and a practical exam.
