"NOLS Wilderness Medicine offers a two-year certification with a one year re-entry period. We have taken the following measure to support students who may be affected by our temporary suspension of courses.If your certification expires between 9/13/2020 and 3/12/2022, there is no change in your certification period or re-entry year.If your certification expired/expires between 3/13/2019 and 9/12/2020 we are automatically adding 9 months to your certification length. Your twelve-month re-entry period begins at the end of your new expiration date.This applies to all NOLS Wilderness Medicine certifications including wilderness medicine, CPR, and epinephrine auto-injector. If your certification was issued by another training provider, please contact them directly. It is our understanding that other programs are considering a similar plan.We are beginning work on a process to make these changes in our data system and to reissue new certification cards. This will take some time and we ask for your patience while we work with our database programmers to institute this change."
