This Wilderness Refresher Course can only be competed if you have previously completed a full Wilderness First Aid Course and have evidence that you hold the unit SISXEMR002 Coordinate and Emergency Response. It is 3 days of practical training and assessment after completing online, self-directed learning modules and a pre-course exam. The online learning modules are accessible pre, during and post the course allowing us to focus on practical training sessions and scenarios as much as possible. The combined delivery of the online modules, credit transfer and the face to face course is equivalent to an 95 hour course based on the nominal hours of delivery. A “Wilderness” area is more than 1 hour from definitive care (Medical Centre/Hospital) and also a region where the land is in a natural state; where impacts from human activities are minimal—that is "as a wilderness". As such, not only is appropriate First Aid care key, but also the ability to coordinate the response. Wilderness first aid is the immediate care given to an injured or suddenly ill person. It does not take the place of definitive medical care, and consists only of giving assistance until a more advanced level of medical care is obtained or until the chance for recovery without medical care is apparent. The course focuses on the skills and knowledge required to provide the best care to a patient, whilst waiting for an extended period of time for help to arrive. Day 1 focuses on CPR, Primary Surveys, Evaluating Injuries & Environment and Trauma Day 2 focuses on Patient Assessments, Medical Conditions and Scenarios Day 3 focuses on Multiple Causality Scenarios , Wound Care and First Aid Kits This course awards the following units of competency and includes the credit transfer of your original unit SISXEMR002 Coordinate and Emergency Response HLTAID009 Provide CPR 22282VIC Course in the Management of Asthma Risks and Emergencies in the Workplace 22099VIC Course in First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis HLTAID011 Provide first aid SISOFLD004 Provide first aid in remote locations Accomodation is NOT available.
