Enrolling means that you are committing yourself to study, and to paying the associated fees. The tuition fees and applicable charges are required to be paid at enrolment or by scheduled instalment dates either by yourself, a nominated third party (e.g. your employer), or as identified within a contract for delivery of TAFE Queensland training.
If you have difficulty paying for the full cost of a course upfront, you may be eligible for a payment plan.
Students must be 14 years of age or over. Participants under 18 years must provide a consent form signed by their legal guardian.
Due to the nature of remote area first aid and the outdoor emergency scenarios within this course some participants may find this program more physically challenging than other indoor first aid courses they have attended.
All training materials will be provided however participants are advised to wear suitable clothing and sun protection. Dresses and skirts are not appropriate.
Students may prefer to bring along and wear a set of old clothing during some scenarios because simulated wound makeup or contact with the outdoors may stain.
