Course overview

Course overview

Get the skills and knowledge required to deliver quality first aid and emergency life support in remote locations. This short course is especially beneficial to people who travel or work in isolated areas where urgent medical care may be delayed because of distance or rugged terrain.

This skill set is delivered through a blend of theory and hands-on training. It 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.

Learn essential first aid skills including how to plan for emergencies in remote places, assess a casualty, perform CPR, and operate an automatic external defibrillator. Discover how to provide prolonged care of isolated casualties, communicate with medical help, report the details of your casualty’s illness, and assist with the evacuation of the sick and injured. You'll also learn how to manage environmental issues (such as extreme heat and cold) and recognise possible psychological impacts on those involved in critical remote-area incidents. 

This skill set may also be delivered in other locations and/or adapted and modified to meet the needs of groups with specific requirements. Additional costs may apply.

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.
