Blended Flexible Training

The course is delivered via our web-based on-line learning in conjunction with face-to-face training sessions in the field, a flexible blended learning environment.

The course content focuses on key skills that develop your knowledge and covers a comprehensive range of issues to equip people to deal with the on-going care for those who need it in a remote or wilderness area. This may include developing skills in first aid in remote situtations, risk management, environmental factors, health and safety, emergency response and overall casualty management in an outdoor wilderness environment. On completion, successful participants will have an understanding of the principles and limitations of remote area first aid. They will have the ability to improvise, adapt and overcome difficulties in managing the patient.

The face-to-face training and assessment is conducted in various locations throughout Australia and is based upon demand. The activity calendar is regularly updated, (every 3 months) to reflect current enrolments. The calendar is on-line allowing students to view and select their own training/ assessment session within their course time-frame.
