It is especially beneficial to people who travel or work in isolated parts of Australia where urgent medical care may be delayed because of distance or rugged terrain.

The program is delivered through a blend of theory and hands-on training and incorporates realistic emergency scenarios which simulate the challenges of caring for the sick and injured in situations where help or rescue may be impossible for many hours.

Selection criteria

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.

Resources required

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.

Skill and knowledge assessments are an essential step in progressing through your course.
