Course details:

This recertifcation program refreshers participants to respond to emergencies in remote settings.

The 28-hour curriculum includes standards for urban and extended patient care situations. Special topics include but are not limited to: wound management and infection, realigning fractures and dislocations, improvised splinting techniques, patient monitoring and long term management problems, up-to-date information on all environmental emergencies, plus advice on medication therapies. Emphasis is placed on prevention and decision-making, not the memorisation of lists.

This course is designed specifically to recertify your current 50 or 60 hour qualification and refresh you with the tools to make critical first aid and evacuation decisions in remote locations. Half of your time will be spent completing practical skills, case studies and scenarios designed to challenge your decision making abilities. CPR is included in this course.
