Course Assessment

Course assessment consists of 4 practical scenario assessments and a multiple choice theoretical assessment. You will be assessed throughout the course to show your trainer that you have an appropriate understanding of the procedures necessary to manage a life-threatening situation. Eagle Training Services uses scenarios to demonstrate how to assess a situation and how to assess the casualty to determine if their condition is life threatening. In these mock situations you are required to use the knowledge you have learnt and administer immediate first aid to help the casualty survive.

Note: physical activity is required to meet assessment criteria and gain competency. Students who have a pre-existing condition prior to the commencement of training must contact Eagle Training Services to discuss their needs.
