Post the COVID pandemic, Survive has decided to run public courses in Victoria only, and Private courses can be arranged in Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia. A minimum of 10 people are required for a Private course.
Changes to the Training package and the release of the new "Wilderness First Aid Skill Set (SISSS00126)" mean Survive will not be running any refresher courses from 2021 - 2023 as the new training package units are not equivalent to the old units. Anyone that already holds a wilderness first aid skill set will need to complete a full Wilderness First Aid course again if they would like to keep this skill set. Just to be clear this has nothing to do with Survive. The training package update was done by Skills IQ in conjunction with ASQA and Survive as an RTO just has to implement the changes.
For our new courses we have transitioned to some online pre course self directed theory learning modules which will allow us to focus completely on practical training and scenarios during our face to face training and assessment. Access to the learning modules will be provided once payment for the course has been made. The learning modules focus on the theory allowing the course to be as practical as possible.
The 3 day Face to Face Remote Area First Aid Course with pre course learning modules is equivalent to a 60 Hour Course and the 4 Day Face to Face Wilderness First Aid Area Course with pre course learning modules is equivalent to a 80 Hour Course based on the nominal hours of delivery.
The difference between the 3 day Remote Area and 4 day Wilderness courses is a focus on the coordination of emergency response with an emphasis on a search and rescue scenario and single response wilderness first aid scenarios on the final day.
Survive First Aid is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 40764) specialising in Remote and Wilderness Training Solutions throughout Australia. Using the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines as our base, a team of paramedics (who form our medical advisory team), ensure the training is both relevant and current within the area of First Aid and Emergency Response. Successful completion of our courses awards participants statements of attainment detailing the relevant National Units of competency that have been achieved.
Survive First Aid is exceptionally proud of its ‘Team of Staff’ who are the face of our company, and with whom the success of our Training is dependent.
All the Trainers have a passion for education and a goal for ensuring you feel empowered and have the skills and knowledge to deal with an emergency when working or playing in a Remote or Wilderness Environment.
