Alpine Lessons - First Aid

Each student undertakes Level One Emergency First Aid during the first 2 weeks of our program. The course is certified by Life Saving Victoria and taught by Alpine School teachers who are endorsed by Life Saving Victoria.

The course covers Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), managing injuries such as sprains, bleeding, fractures and burns and the management of shock. The students are assessed mainly through observation and participation in class as well as a CPR exam. The course concludes with a lesson in the outdoor environment with scenarios designed around potential real life situations the students may face when on expedition or out and about our local area.
