Due to Covid, NO First Aid Courses will be offerd to the general public in 2021! WFR and WFR recertification courses will ONLY be offerd to Whitman students, faculty, and staff!

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 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

Because of Covid, we will NOT be offering any first aid courses for the 2021 season to the general public.  First aid courses will only be available to Whitman students, faculty, and staff.  If you have interest in hosting a community WFR or WFR Recertification course outside of Whitman, you can email Lish Riley or Brien Sheedy for more information on resources to do that.
