Wilderness First Aid Course – 5 Day
8 January @ 8:00 am - 12 January @ 5:00 pm
This program is held onsite at Mt Barney Lodge and is delivered by Wilderness First Aid Australia.
The course trains participants to respond to emergencies in remote settings.
The 50-hour curriculum includes standards for urban and extended patient care situations. Special topics include but are not limited to: wound management and infection, realigning fractures and dislocations, improvised splinting techniques, patient monitoring and long term management problems, up-to-date information on all environmental emergencies. Emphasis is placed on prevention and decision-making, not the memorisation of lists.
This course is designed specifically to provide you with the tools to make critical first aid and evacuation decisions in remote locations. Half of your time will be spent completing practical skills, case studies and scenarios designed to challenge your decision making abilities. CPR/AED is included in this course.
