Topic - Looking for emergency medical training (beyond first aid)

needvert on 28 Mar 2014
I'm interested in advancing my medical skills beyond their current rudimentary first aid.

Context is injuries and illness in remote areas where assistance may take hours or days to eventuate.

I'm willing to spend weeks on this objective, up to 8kUSD (course fees), and travel internationally. I have no existing relevant qualifications.

Slight preference to courses in NZ or Australia. Any course would have to be in English.

The intention is to not work in the medical field, though it would be another thing to bolster the CV with.

Any suggestions?

Wilderness emergency medical technician seems the closest to what I'm looking for that I've seen so far:
