Hi all - I understand the course is now full and has reached their limit of numbers. Please send me an email if you are interested in a course - the club has previously arranged a dedicated training session, which if there are enough people (and someone willing to coordinate) then we could do again.

This remote area first aid course is 3 days over 2 weekends (you must attend all 3 days), on the 13, 19-20 November.

The club would like to encourage its trip leaders and members to obtain current first aid qualifications, and is offering subsidies to active club members to undertake this course.

This St Johns course has been arranged by the Bushwalkers' Wilderness Rescue Squad, and is already excellent value at $189, and the subsidy on offer is $95 for students, and $50 to non-students.

We only have limited funds put aside for this, so we will be prioritizing trip leaders and active members, and you will need your subsidy to be confirmed by the committee.

The BWRS site has info at the link below. Please note that we will only subsidise the 3-day remote area first aid course (not the 1 day provide first aid course), and that you must register with BWRS by 3 November.

Here's how to take advantage of the subsidy:

1. Join this walk to apply for the subsidy - committee will provide confirmation.
2. Sign up, pay for and attend the first aid course at
3. On completion of the course, send a copy of the receipt and first aid certificate to the treasurer for reimbursement

If there are other courses that people are interested in, then people can contact the committee for the course to be considered. Generally remote area first aid courses will be considered, or if there are regular leaders who are unable to attend a remote area course, a senior first aid course could be considered. (the committee's email address is

Active members are generally defined as:
- Those who have been members for >6 months and have been on at least one bush trip
- Those who have been members for less than 6 months will generally need to be leading or will be leading trips, or are going on bush trips on a regular basis.
