Orientation

We help you adjust to your work as a Retrieval Registrar by providing a seven (7) day intensive training course at our state-of-the-art LifeFlight Training Academy. This includes specific operational training for rotary and fixed wing retrieval medicine and clinical skills training in emergency retrieval and pre-hospital care. This includes: 

  • Helicopter and plane operations
  • Pre-hospital care
  • Winching operations
  • Disaster management
  • International retrieval
  • Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET)
  • Emergency Breathing Systems (EBS)


This isn’t a rote learning course. Our emphasis is on safety and ensuring you become demonstrably capable in each of these key areas. This training also counts towards your Postgraduate Certificate in Aeromedical Retrieval (with James Cook University).
