To better prepare you for success we provide you with a study guide that must be completed and handed into your instructors the morning of the first day of class. Prerequisites: Previous WFR certifications must have be at least 72-hours in length. All participants must have completed and returned the refresher course study guide to the course instructors the first day of class (Click on link below for more information)
