Who certifies Kilimanjaro guides for Wilderness First Responder (WFR)? | Fair Voyage

Who certifies Kilimanjaro guides for Wilderness First Responder (WFR)?

Kilimanjaro guides have to undergo many hours of practical and theoretical training to obtain their Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification. The cost of doing this is often paid by the tour operator. Most tour operators who employ WFR certified guides train their guides at Wilderness Medical Associates International (the only institute that conducts training in Tanzania) to obtain their WFR training and certificates, which are valid for three years. Our most luxurious tour operator partners send their guides overseas to train at the Sentinel Outdoor Institute, which is based in the US.
