REMOTE AREA FIRST AID COURSE STRUCTURE
Participants in the Remote Area First Aid Course will need to complete approximately 16 hours of pre-course reading/study in the form of an online ‘First Aid’ flip-book, which will be sent via email once enrolled in the course, (a copy of this text will then be given on day one of the course).
A multiple choice exam will take place on day 1 to check the level of knowledge achieved from the pre-course reading/study. The course will then be predominantly practically based, with first aid topics reviewed using effective modern audio visual presentations, followed by relevant role plays/scenario’s enabling skills to be practiced and demonstrated. Assessment of the relevant Units of Competency will be achieved through ongoing observation of the demonstration of skills and through the submission of notes taken during the role plays and scenarios.
