First Aid in Remote Areas

When you work alone or in a small team whilst in a remote location, your approach to first aid needs to acknowledge the additional lead time between when an accident happens and when help can arrive. Your actions can help buy critical time for yourself, your workmate/s or your family.

Description

First Aid in Remote Areas +Plus+ Stop the Bleed®

 

This course teaches self and partner management of critical bleeds, fractures and sprains.  It introduces you to different equipment and techniques for extraction and provides a sound basis for emergency planning for individualised circumstances.

 

A powerful addition to your ‘regular’ first aid course, or as a stand-alone course, this is designed for industry professionals such as DOC workers, the logging and forestry industry, farmers and agriculturalists, pest controllers, hunters and trampers. 

 

As with the entire PracMed NZ training suite, the courses are engaging, highly practical and hands-on.  Students receive brand new, in packet gauze and bandaging to give the most comprehensive haemorrhage control training available in NZ.  The blueprint for managing different bleeds is provided, with everything from protecting yourself with gloves, to opening the packets, to using the state of the art wet and dry trainers. This is the most realistic training on the market

 

Our Trainers have been hand picked because of their extensive experience with the challenges of working remotely, away from assistance.  Their proven application of REAL first aid sets them apart and when combined with their charisma and natural teaching abilities, sets them apart and enables them to create a truly positive educational experience.

Site Requirements

To run this as a on-site private course, we require a training space with adequate room for practical activities.  At any stage, half of the group will be working on partners lying on the ground - we need ample space for them to work safely. As it is quite practical, the room needs to be well ventilated. 

We'll need two tables, enough chairs for the participants and space for the projector to display. We're happy to use your AV set up if you have one.
