Wilderness Trainings

Wilderness First Responder | Wilderness First Aid | Register
Venture Out offers Wilderness First Responder (WFR) and Wilderness First Aid (WFA) training each year in January. People involved in outdoor activities (Canoeing, Backpacking, Caving, Hunting, Fishing, Rock climbing) or who plan to pursue an outdoor career should strongly consider this exceptional leadership opportunity. Many outdoor programs such as National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), Outward Bound and the federal government require WFR for entry level positions. All emergency medical trainings are taught by:  Stonehearth Open Learning Opportunities (SOLO) These courses are open to Mizzou students and non-students of all age.
