Course details:

Remote area personnel and outdoor trip leaders often require a more extensive training program than an Urban First Aid course. The WFAA 4-day Extended Remote First Aid course will give you extended knowledge and skills to deal with situations that may occur whilst in a remote location.

This four 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 four day Extended Remote 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.



Students will undergo:

  • 67 multiple choice question ERFA written test
  • CPR/AED practical test
  • ERFA practical test (ongoing)

Wilderness First Aid Australia (WFAA) delivers nationally accredited training on behalf of: Australian Institute of Leadership and Safety (AILS) RTO # 45354 https://www.ails.edu.au



To ensure ALL students get the most out of their learning participants should bring ALL their own personal equipment (not limited to the list below) to gain a lot stronger understanding and familiarity with how to respond in an emergency situation.

What to Bring (minimum)

  • Warm/appropriate clothing to be outside. Please DO NOT wear your best outdoor clothing and gear as you will be outside on the ground and stage makeup will be used.
  • Sleeping bag
  • Foam mat, Thermorest, insulation
  • Wet weather gear
  • Small tarp, tent flye, hootchi, (some sort of shelter protection)
  • Sun protection – 30+SPF/Zinc
  • Water bottle
  • Backpack
  • Pen, paper
  • Watch/timer (displaying seconds)
  • 2 x spare jumpers and t-shirts for padding for splints
  • Daypack, walking poles, paddles - gear you would normally have with you outdoors that you can use to improvise splints
  • If there is an accommodation option, please bring sleeping bag/linen, pillow and towel, etc.


To maximise participant learning ensure you wear OLD clothing, it may be a good idea to source clothing from a second hand clothing or ‘Opportunity Shop’ beforehand.Throughout the course we use stage makeup and it states that it does not stain clothing/material this may not always be the case.
