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/AED is included in this course.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS PRE COURSE WORK IN THE FORM A BOOKLET THAT WILL NEED TO BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO THE COURSE START. THIS BOOKLET TAKES APPROXIMATELY 5 HOURS.

NOTE: The Safe Work Australia First Aid Model Code of Practice requires employers to ensure that their nominated first aiders attend training on a regular basis to remain current. The Code of Practice recommends that refresher training in CPR/AED should be undertaken annually from the date of issue and first aid qualification should be renewed every three years from the date of issue to maintain currency.



Assessment:

Students will undergo:

75 question multiple choice WFA/LWFA written test
CPR/AED practical test
WFA/LWFA practical test
Wilderness First Aid Australia (WFAA) delivers nationally accredited training on behalf of: Australian Institute of Leadership and Safety (AILS) RTO # 45354 https://www.ails.edu.au


Students will also recieve a (50hr) WFAA - Wilderness First Aid OR (60hr) WFAA - Leaders Wilderness First Aid (LWFA) certificate of attendance.



- WFAA SUPPLIES A LIMITED AMOUNT OF GEAR FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES ONLY!


To ensure ALL students get the most out of their learning participants should bring ALL their own personal equipment (not limited to the list below) to gain a lot stronger understanding and familiarity with how to respond in an emergency situation.


What to Bring (minimum)


Warm/appropriate clothing to be outside. Please DO NOT wear your best outdoor clothing as you will be outside on the ground and stage makeup will be used which can stain if no washed.
Sleeping bag
Foam mat, Thermorest, insulation
Wet weather gear
Small tarp, tent flye, hootchi, (some sort of shelter protection)
Sun protection – 30+SPF/Zinc
Water bottle
Backpack
Pen, paper
Watch with second hand
2 x spare jumpers and t-shirts for padding for splints
Walking poles, paddles - gear you would normally have with you outdoors that you can use to improvise splints
If the course has an accommodation option, please bring sleeping bag/linen, pillow and towel, etc.


To maximise participant learning ensure you wear OLD clothing, it may be a good idea to source clothing from a second hand clothing or ‘Opportunity Shop’ beforehand.Throughout the course we use stage makeup and it states that it does not stain clothing/material this may not always be the case.



If you have chosen to self cater, please bring a packed lunch and snacks, as breaks are short and most venues do not have food available close by.
