At each of our events, ACTRA endeavours to have a qualified first aid officer on the admin team. We rarely have any serious injuries or incidents, however training in remote first aid provides excellent knowledge and skills to have in the field if there is a medical emergency.
ACTRA is hosting a remote area first aid course on 4-5 June 2022 (8.30am to 4.30pm each day). The trainer is Margot Hurrell who has extensive outdoor experience and teaching in remote first aid. The course will be held at Corroboree Park in Ainslie in and around the functions room.
The deal is that anyone who attends should volunteer to be the first aid officer at events as 'repayment' for the course paid by ACTRA. We are suggesting 1-2 events over the next 3 years.
There is one place left to fill. If you would like to attend, please email Jean.
Participants all get the national accreditation Statement of Attainment for the following units: HLTAID009 (Provide CPR), HLTAID011 (Provide First Aid) and HLTAID013 Provide First Aid in a Remote or isolated area.
In Australia it is recommended that CPR is recertified every 12 months. The other certificates are valid for 3 years. There will be 2 hours of on-line information to be completed before the course starts.
