How to Register for First Aid Courses
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.
