What Course is best for Me
Learning the skills that are relevant to your workplace, family or recreational situation are important if you really want to KNOW what to do. This will help you decide which course is best for you.
CPR & Provide First Aid
Can be regarded as the entry level course that meets most workplace requirements providing a good grounding in First Aid. It is also meets the workplace level 2 Australian standards for the workplace first aider.
However the training assumes you are in an urban environment where definitive medical care (the ambulance in most cases) is no more than 30 – 40 minutes away. The agreed definition is that over 30 minutes is regarded as ‘remote’.
Remote First Aid
This is where definitive medical care is more than 1 hour, but less than 24 hours away due to distance, transport, communication, weather or access. It is important to understand the impact on your location and the access to the casualty on this. If the nature of your work or recreation means that access to you is delayed, you could easily be in a situation where you might have to manage a casualty for more than an hour whilst the ambulance or paramedics make their way to you.
Wilderness First Aid
This is where definitive medical care could be 24 hours or more away. You will learn the skills to enable you to manage a casualty and a group in a remote or wilderness area and to manage an emergency situation for a protracted period of time. If you are leading an expiation or group we would strongly recommend taking a qualified paramedic with you.
