About this Course

TacMed’s Remote Casualty Care course can be described as educational, adventurous, challenging and fun! 

If you picture a course that combines Remote Area First Aid, Military Prolonged Field Care and Wilderness Medicine all mixed into 3 Days (including some night training) worth of learning, then that’s what our Remote Casualty Care Course is.

We’ll introduce you to the concepts of remote casualty care and wilderness rescue through a combination of theory, skill stations and immersive scenarios. With the experience of our highly qualified cadre, we’ll challenge you (yes, our aim is to put you out of your comfort zone) both clinically and mentally. There will be some physically challenging components but you don’t need to be an ironman to join us.

The Bush location is approx 60 mins West of Brisbane CBD. Participants have the option to camp out on location on the night of the 27th Oct after the night exercise.
