Many folks come to us for a strong foundation in EMS training before they go on to advanced training. Most of our students take the EMT-B Intensive in combination of the Wilderness upgrade for EMT’s from WMTC for to support oversees travel expeditions or recreational employment stateside.
It depends. If you have successfully completed one of our WFR courses and your certification has not yet expired, then yes; you will automatically upgrade to a WEMT until the original WFR certification expires. Your wilderness upgrade (WEMT) expiration date is the same as your original WFR certification expiration date.

No, not at this time.
