First aid skills are essential for parties venturing out on trips and as such the club is offering a limited number of subsidised places to attend a two day introductory level wilderness first aid course. Wilderness first aid courses go beyond the skills covered in more traditional first aid courses acknowledging that often first aid incidents that occur during an outdoor activity may need to be immediately dealt with by members of the party, as external help may take considerable time to reach the group.
At this stage the dates have not been finalised - however the following three weekends are being considered (subject to interested participant availability and instructor availability):
17/18 June, 15/16 July or 14/15 October
Course cost is TBC, however likely to be approximately $240. The club will subsidise this by up to 60% for current students and up to 50% for non student club members. If you are interested, please sign up to the EOI, and email stevenmhare[ at ]gmail dot com with the dates you are available from the three listed above, and how you think the club can benefit from subsidising you to attend. Once I have suitable interest the date will be confirmed and I will advise the final costs and subsidy amounts.
