Wilderness First Responder courses are sponsored by Channel Islands Outfitters and instructed by Sierra Rescue.

Certification: Participants are required to pass both written and practical examinations to obtain WFR and CPR certification. Successful course completion earns you a WMI Adult & Child CPR certification and a WMI Wilderness First Responder certification. EMTs will earn a Wilderness EMT certification. All certifications are current for two years.

Set at the beach in Santa Barbara County we will use this marine environment to simulate water related illness, trauma, and rescues. Mild temperatures, typically sunny skies, and possible surf make Goleta Beach a perfect place to recertify your Wilderness First Responder in a marine environment.

You can camp at Refugio State Beach, El Capitan State beach (15 minutes away) or stay at one of the local accomodations. We recommend The Goodland.

It is our mission to save the oceans and natural places by fostering an understanding of them through education, adventures and outdoor experiences.
