Jason Taylor from Category 5 Emergency Care is coming to Paluma to teach a Standard Wilderness and Remote First Aid course.

Sam and Aline have done multiple courses with Jason already and highly recommend them to anyone who likes to adventure and maybe even works outdoors, especially in remote areas. So we have teamed up with Jason and we are bringing you the Standard R.A.W First Aid course to Paluma.

We will spend the weekend at the Adventure Centre in Paluma and stay at the Adventure House and the Guesthouse (shared accommodation). Meals will be provided, please let us know if you have any dietary requirements.

What is R.A.W First Aid?

Category 5 offers a unique nationally recognised training course on behalf of Allens Training Pty Ltd RTO 90909. Remote and Wilderness First Aid designed for those who work and play in the outdoors. While “Senior” First Aid Courses give you great basic skills and knowledge, they don’t account for being a long way from help.

RAW First Aid differs significantly from standard first aid courses that are oriented toward the urban environment. RAW first aid will give you extended knowledge and skills to deal with situations that may occur whilst in a remote location. We prepare students for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments and improvised equipment. Our courses are scenario based which means you get hands on experience to prepare you for the real thing. They are fun, practical and very comprehensive. We use stage makeup and blood to give the realistic effect and a true outdoor experience.

These courses are perfect for Outdoor Professionals, Mine sites, Camping, Scuba Diving Professionals and anyone who works or plays in the outdoors.

Topics include:

  • Introduction & Medical Legal Issues
  • Patient Assessment & Basic Life support
  • Traumatic Injuries
  • Spinal Injury (including clearing a spinal injury in the field)
  • Head Injury
  • Bleeding and Wound Management
  • Musculoskeletal Injuries (including relocating dislocations and angulated fractures)
  • Environmental Injuries
  • Bites & Stings
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Common problems

  • AED – Defibrillation

The following unit(s) will be awarded to successful participants in this course. The certificate will be issued by Allens Training Pty Ltd – RTO 90909.
