How to Register for First Aid Courses

Whitman Students

The registrar’s office will handle all Whitman student registrations for WFR classes but the OP rental shop will handle the WFR recertification course. Whitman students can register any time during the fall semester for the January WFR course with Stacey Giusti in the registrar's office. This class fills up early so it is recommended to register in October or November for the January WFR course.

Community Members/ Non-Whitman Students

There are waitlist spaces available in the January and March WFR courses for non-students. Registration for these spaces are handled by the Whitman College Outdoor Program Rental Shop on a first come first served basis. To register call 509-527-5965 or email: rileyab@whitman.edu
