How to make a makeshift stretcher to get out of a rainforest?   

What's the correct med supplies to carry on a high altitude mission?  

RAFA teaches learners to stabilise a casualty until medical evacuation is possible. The course is designed to enhance learners pre-existing first aid knowledge but out in the field, whilst working in complex environments.

This is a 40% pracical and 60% scenario based First Aid Course that will leave learners with a good grasp of how to deal with casualties in remote and often challenging environments.
