In fact all our courses are built form the ground up not just subject to minimum (unit standard) requirements.Many of our clients have specific factors in their work place that make course tailoring essential to ensure their staff remain safe and in control of their own environment.

Our courses have taken into account the following criteria in the past:

WHY EMERGENCY CARE? THE GOLDEN HOUR
First Aid relies on someone arriving soon to take over and deliver a higher level of emergency assistance to eliminate life threats and promote recovery as soon as possible. Pre hospital emergency care is that assistance. In many places where Resort isolation and remoteness is a factor, or the country’s infrastructure is unable to provide emergency care services, the liability of duty of care rests heavily with the Resort.
Emergency Care is essential to maintain life in complex situations when trying to stay within the ‘Golden Hour’
The Golden Hour is a defined time where without comprehensive medical support within an hour, seriously ill casualties will have little or no chance of recovery.
Pacific Medicare courses are designed around the primary aim to provide staff with the capability of delivering the necessary emergency care assistance when, and as long as required.
Duty of care is increasingly becoming an expected criterion for the travel & tourism industry. First aid is just that!! It merely provides a small stop gap in a chain of medical assistance. But what if that chain is weak or non existent?
In some cases duty of care has been found lacking by the host (in knowing the local emergency services are inadequate to international standards).
By training staff to narrow the perception between the tourism industry and what is actually in place, resorts not only demonstrate a high quality duty of care but provide a much needed and appreciated level of care their guests will recognize and come back to because of piece of mind.
