Course details:

Remote area personnel and outdoor trip leaders often require a more extensive training program than an Urban First Aid course. The WFAA 50 hour Wilderness First Aid course will give you extended knowledge and skills to deal with situations that may occur whilst in a remote location.

This five day course focuses on stabilisation, treatment and evacuation guidelines of patients in remote & backcountry environments. More emphasis is placed on long term patient care management and specific injury evaluation.

The WFAA five day Wilderness First Aid course utilses theoretical and practical knowledge and skills as a means to ensuring all participants are deemed competent should they have to respond to an emergency situation.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS PRE COURSE WORK IN THE FORM A BOOKLET THAT WILL NEED TO BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO THE COURSE COMMENCEMENT.

This course is a part of HLT21015 - Certificate II in Medical Service First Response. 
Successful completion of the below five Units of Competency will result in the issue of a Statement of Attainment. The five units provide a credit towards HLT21015 - Certificate II in Medical Service First Response.

A Statement of Attainment will be issued to students who do not complete the full course, listing the unit they have completed.

NOTE: The Safe Work Australia First Aid Model Code of Practice requires employers to ensure that their nominated first aiders attend training on a regular basis to remain current. The Code of Practice recommends that refresher training in CPR/AED should be undertaken annually from the date of issue and first aid qualification should be renewed every three years from the date of issue to maintain currency.
