Australia is a vast country with much to do and many places to explore. Visitors to Australia, along with workers in remote environments are subject to isolation and prone to experience the unforgiving nature of emergencies that can occur when far away from our major population centres. Remote First Aid (HLTAID005) is an important course delivered by Real First Aid in Sydney that benefits people far and wide around NSW and the rest of Australia.
The Remote First Aid course is tailored specifically for people who require first aid and emergency response skills when other assistance isn’t available. In other words, you will develop self-sufficient and self-reliant first aid attainments that go with you wherever you are. The knowledge and skills naturally translate into city and urban environments also, making the life saving capabilities worth attaining for work, home, or anywhere else people need assistance. Most people don’t encounter life-or-death situations, but when high-risk, low-frequency emergencies do occur, it’s reassuring to know you can act with speed and precision that saves lives.
Who would benefit from the Sydney remote first aid course?
Remote First Aid (HLTAID005) is an industry-standard first aid course tailored for active and outdoor people who are ready to experience the beauty (and harshness) of isolated Australian conditions. Australian occupations involve fly-in, fly-out employment where employees and employers spend weeks or months away from Sydney, so providing assurance to loved ones that you and your colleagues are in safe hands is essential. The beauty of Australia conceals a harshness that demands respect, and the Remote First Aid course delivered in Sydney is the appropriate response.
Many Australian industries and employers expect employees to undertake compulsory first aid training as part of industry-specific training, and as health and safety values are increasingly promoted, the employment opportunities for trained first aiders is regularly expanding. Training courses that include Remote First Aid (HLTAID005) as part of the curriculum include:
- Certificate IV in Guiding
- Advanced Diploma of Hospitality
- Gas Supply Industry Operations
- Certificate IV in Holiday Parks and Resorts
- Diploma of Travel and Tourism Management
