About Our Basic Wilderness Certification (Responding to Emergencies First Aid) Wilderness Emergency Care (WEC) is a program that trains and certifies people to cope with wilderness hazards and emergencies. It includes training at all levels, from basic and intermediate courses for those who do wilderness recreation, to the advanced courses that wilderness professionals need. It also includes review and challenge courses to facilitate re-certification. While the focus of our training is on wilderness situations, the skills that we teach can be used in urban emergencies as well. Urban emergency training can be of use when a major disaster disrupts urban services and cuts off typical urban resources, it then becomes a wilderness situation. Our WEC courses should therefore appeal not only to those who do wilderness activities, but also to those who want to prepare for disasters, and to anyone who wants more thorough and intensive training. In our courses, we train people to think quickly and to improvise with only the resources available.
