This non residential course runs over 3 consecutive days. It is an accredited course with Advanced Life Support (UK) and is widely accepted internationally.

The content includes command, safety, communication, assessmnt, triage, treatment and transport, through:

  • structured lectures;
  • a series of table-top exercises;
  • practical exercises in radio communication;
  • casualty simulation triage exercises;
  • workshops; and
  • field exercises for command training involving airport and large crowd incidents (sports or similar).

The course is competency based and participants are tested in the practical application of the skills taught and practised. This course is particularly relevant for those in senior positions likely to take a coordination or command role, or those involved with staff development/training. A manual and materials are supplied as part of the course. Instructors are experienced Emergency Medicine Specialists, Emergency Nurses and Paramedics. 13 courses have been held in Western Australia and Northern Territory. There is not a progression from the Team Member to the Commander course, so there is no pre-requisite requirement to have undertaken the Team Member course first.

Class Size: Minimum 12 - Maximum 24.  Please review the scheduled dates for courses below, or contact your State or Territory for advice on the next available course.
