Explorer Alumni post-course notes & resources

Dear Delegates
Now that you’ve completed a WMT course you are now alumni – welcome to the WMT community! Following your WMT Explorer course we will have directed you to this page. It is not public so only the link in our follow-up email will get you here (save it for future reference). Spam filters are getting more aggressive, especially with email attachments so we’re trialling this new online format. Apologies if it feels a bit generic and impersonal! Please take a few minutes to read through the following brief notes.

The WMT Explorer manual includes section Assessments and Nursing Case Studies (and Triage exercises for FFH Part 2/Advanced Medicine). You’ll find the answers towards the back of the book.

Your training is valid for 2 years. Upgrade from Far From Help training to Advanced Medicine status or keep your Advanced Medicine ticket in date by ensuring you attend the 2-day Far From Help Part 2 course before your expiry date.

Download an Excel copy of the WMT/Nomad POM/medicines list here.
Nomad order form WMT Explorer courses July 2017.

Scan your certificate please. A charge is made to re-issue it. You will need a copy of it to order POMs from Nomad so it is important.

Rather than cannibalise your manual, download a PDF bundle of patient record forms, history taking sheets, patient monitoring forms and like here WMT Explorer course record sheets bundle July 2015

We invite any and all alumni to put pen to paper and write up a Wilderness Case Report if you have dealt with an interesting medical incident on expedition. Please see examples and guidance notes at this page.

We will keep in touch with you via email with periodic Newsletters and Medical Director’s Bulletins (archived here). Other resource material is available under the KNOWLEDGE tab including the WMT Expediton Pre-travel Medical Questionnaire.

Check out our BLOG where you’re likely to see pictures taken of the course you attended.

If private training for your organisation or team is of interest, please get in touch.

Thanks for reading – keep in touch.
Team WMT
