Combing Remote Area First Aid, Military Prolonged Field Care and Wilderness Vertical Rescue all mixed into 3 Days of challenging education!
This course can be described as educational, adventurous, challenging and fun! If you picture a course that combines Remote Area First Aid, Military Prolonged Field Care and Wilderness Vertical Rescue all mixed into 2.5 Days (including night training) worth of learning, then that’s what our Remote Casualty Care Course is.
We’ll introduce you to the concepts of remote casualty care and wilderness rescue through a combination of theory, skill stations and immersive scenarios.
With the experience of our highly qualified cadre, which includes a mix of former Australian & International Special Operations Medics and experienced Remote Area Paramedics, we’ll challenge you (yes, our aim is to put you out of your comfort zone) both clinically and mentally.
