BWRS remote first aid
If you are keen to get some first aid skills, with a focus on remote area first aid, then you should check out the courses offered by the Bushwalkers Wilderness Rescue Squad - they run these courses that are, by all accounts, great.
Remember too that if you have been a major volunteer at a NSWRA event then you can claim $100 towards the cost of a first-aid course - like this one - rather than getting a free event entry!
