Our partners at the Institute for WildMed are experts when it comes to responding to emergencies. That's why we've teamed up to offer this 16-clock hour, hybrid version of Wilderness First Aid & CPR certification to help you prepare for an outdoor emergency.


  • The first 8 clock hours of the course is asynchronous, which means you can move through online content at your own pace. The online training must be completed prior to attending the second half of the course, held in person. Your confirmation email will contain a link to the asynchronous, online portion of the training. You can get started right away!
  • The last 8 clock hours of the course will be held in person at the location you selected during registration. You must complete the entire 16 clock hours to receive Wilderness First Aid & CPR certification.


This course is designed for anyone who leads nature-based education and outdoor learning, which may include: teachers and administrators in preschool, childcare, or elementary school settings; naturalists, environmental educators, or outdoor educators; wilderness survival enthusiasts; and parents.


Nicole Roma Thurrell has degrees in Psychology and Recreation Therapy from the University of North Carolina. She has been an EMT since 2001. She worked in many aspects of wilderness therapy for nearly a decade - expedition leader, health director, director of admissions. In addition to the roles listed above, she has been an adventure racer, a raft guide, high ropes facilitator, a clinician for kids with Autism, a Waldorf high school teacher, and a mom. She is a passionate educator who loves turning people on to strategies for being more confident and comfortable in nature. She lives in a solar village in Greenfield, MA.

We extend an extra special thank you to our hosts at Carrie Murray Nature Center in Baltimore, MD and the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park in Annapolis, MD. Thank you for welcoming this important training at your site!
