Remote First Aid Training

What would you do if someone became ill on an overnight hike? If your friend was bitten by a snake? Or someone took a fall and broke their leg?

Develop your outdoor skills with hands on practical first aid training for remote situations.

Remote First Aid training provides participants with the skills to perform first aid in remote situations where medical attention may be delayed. This is particularly suited to the type of outdoor activities we undertake in the club where weather, terrain, or distance can hinder the arrival of medical services and require the patient to receive first aid for an extended period of time.

This training is for:

– Participants who have no First Aid training (participants in this category will need to complete an online training component to meet the minimum prerequisite, this is included in the course cost),
– Participant who need their regular First Aid Refresher,
– Participants who have prior Remote First Aid and need renewal.

At the completion of this training all participants will be brought up to the nationally recognised level of HLTAID005, specifically this includes:

HLTAID005 – Provide first aid in remote situations (Valid for 3 years)
HLTAID003 – Provide first aid (Valid for 3 years)
HLTAID001 – Provide cardio pulmonary resuscitation (Valid for 6 months)

The training will be held over three full days: 20th, 21st, and 22nd of January 2021. Note this is a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The club has organised the training at a significantly discounted rate through Red Cross Australia, members will be able to attend at a cost of $220 for the three days training (normally $540). If you are shortlisted for the training you will need to pay the fee by the 31 Dec 2020 to secure your place.

There are limited places available, priority will be given to active Trip Leaders.
