This intensive weekend Remote First Aid Course is designed to better prepare ANUMC members for remote area emergency situations where an ambulance is not just around the corner.

The course is run by Wilderness First Aid Australia (WFAA), an Australian owned company established in 2010 that specialises in wilderness/remote area first aid education for those unexpected situations. At WFAA students learn decision-making skills, treatment principles and are put to the test by responding to real life scenarios based on your skills and knowledge that are developed over the duration of your course. The program meets the needs of the Australian environment and context. There will be lots of hands on scenarios relevant to the Club's activities. There is no pre-requisite for this course. 

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive following certifications:

HLTAID001 - Provide CPR
HLTAID003 - Provide first aid
HLTAID005 - Provide first aid in remote situations

Costs per participants is approx. $350. The ANUMC will subsidize the course fees for active members as follows:
• student members up to 60%
• non-student members up to 40%.

To participate in this subsidised course, you need to be a valid ANUMC+ANU Sport member and outline in the additional information field 

-your participation in club activities in the last six months
