The Crossing Land Education Trust

Advanced Wilderness First Aid (AWFA) for overnight journeys and remote areas (where remote means that you can expect help to take more than an hour to reach you).  This course is for teachers who supervise hikes, for outdoor instructors or young volunteers taking on leadership roles.  You will learn a lot in a short time and feel more confident about what to do when an emergency arises and you find yourself needing to improvise.

The course includes Senior First Aid, CPR and Remote First Aid qualifications over 4 days. This is a minimum qualification for being more than 1 hour from help.

Run by Pat Guinane from Wilderness First Aid Consultants at The Crossing

This course is focused on practical hands-on scenarios. $540 for local daytrippers and $680 for stay overs (you can BYO tent or stay in the bunkhouse).  BYO lunch and other day snacks in a daypack to be mobile for all the scenarios.  3 Breakfasts and 3 dinners are provided for overnight stayers.

  • 4 days from Sunday 7 to Wednesday 10 Feb.
