* The pre-course work required for this course takes time: please review the material and plan accordingly. You will NOT be able to complete the in-person portion of this course if the pre-course work has not been completed.
* Students will have access to the WFR Study Guide before the course starts. They are required to complete the assigned reading, case studies, study guide, and tests. The on-site instruction that follows reinforces and expands on the knowledge already acquired. Because students arrive familiar with the didactic material, on-site daytime training can focus on wilderness and rescue scenarios and practical skills. Evenings are reserved for study and assignments. Expect rescue scenarios with made-up victims and simulated wounds to prepare you for backcountry emergencies.
* Chewonki will provide lunch each day.
* It is cold in January in Maine! Please be prepared to receive instruction inside and outside.
* Room and board are available for an additional cost of $200 (+ 9% lodging tax). This is a shared bunk space in rustic wood heated cabins. Includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner from the dinner the night prior to the course through lunch on the last day of the course.
* After you submit this course reservation and are charged the non-refundable $200 deposit, you will receive an email from us with information about the required pre-course work. PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER for your course correspondence. (Current/future Chewonki staff: a $50 deposit will be processed, and the course balance will be processed on January 3rd to allow for professional development funding requests to be considered.)
* The balance of the course will be processed on the credit card provided on December 3rd, 30 days prior to the start of the course and is non-refundable due to the limited size offering of the course.
