Check out the St John's Ambulance (Victoria) website for the details.

They have a three day Remote Areas course running at Wesburn, commencing on 25 May.

My wife and I recently completed a basic first aid course with St John's Ambulance, and will do a Remote Areas one later on this year.

Hi forumites, Can someone tell me what the difference is between the First Aid course and a Remote Area one.

Cheers

It was explained to me at a recent first aid course that "first aid" is a set of practices and procedures which are used when help is close by (an ambulance can be called on a mobile telephone service and can reasonably be expected to show up in twenty minutes or less); a r"emote areas" course teaches a set of practices and procedures where you're on your own for a fair period of time (half a day, or more).

Hi Steve,

Melbourne Ambulance Service run a course at Dandenong and can be reached on 1800248859.

These guys actually provide ambulance services in Victoria and deliver high quality real life education on first aid.

They along with St Johns would be well worth a call.

Have a good one.

Gday,
Do it separately if its convenient.
You have to learn more from two lessons as long as you talk about it after wards????
