The courses offered by Sirius are physically demanding and require a great deal of concentration. It is therefore important that you arrive rested. We also recommend that you refrain from additional activities during meal breaks and on the evenings preceding the course days. Sirius requires the full presence and participation of the participants during the entire training. If, for any reason, you are unable to participate in any of the course segments, please call the head office to discuss options.
On the first day of the course, each participant receives a comprehensive course manual on first aid in remote areas. Sirius' courses are designed to provide students with an important practical component, consisting of real-life simulations and practical tests. We provide the required specialized teaching materials, including: First aid supplies and equipment, bandages, splints, back boards, etc. First aid kits and materials used during demonstrations and practical sessions. Complete make-up and accessory kits for the simulations. Accident report forms and course materials.
Quoi apporter au cours ?
During first aid training in isolated areas, you use equipment that you normally carry with you on a trip lasting more than 24 hours. Participants must bring the following equipment to class:
- A bottle of water
- Watch with second hand (or digital) to measure vital signs
- A pen and paper
- Comfortable clothing and shoes for indoor classes - risk of getting dirty
- Outdoor clothing suitable for outdoor activities (rain or shine)
- Small backpack for carrying equipment during simulations
- Old sleeping bag and old clothes for outdoor simulations - risk of getting dirty
- Foam floor mats for outdoor sessions and as immobilization
- Tarp, backdrop or floor mat (3 m x 3 m) for simulation and patient/victim care
- Rope, 5 mm x 5 m, for patient/victim care
- A headlamp (when evening sessions are scheduled)
Participants' knowledge and skills are assessed throughout the training through review sessions, tests and exams, and ongoing evaluation of skill acquisition. Participants' knowledge and skills are also evaluated on the last day of training through a multiple-choice exam, which is reviewed and corrected in class. Students in advanced training (advanced first aid and first responder) are also subject to a practical exam.
Sirius course certificates are valid for a period of three years. In order to keep their knowledge and skills up to date, participants are encouraged to attend frequent training sessions, on-the-job training, as well as refresher courses once a year. Many of our clients take refresher courses while their certification is still in effect.
To be eligible for the certification in Wilderness First Aid, you must have completed the CPR-AED module, which is offered as part of the Advanced Wilderness First Aid (40 hours) course in which you are registered.
