ARRO Learning Symposium

The highly regarded ARRO Learning Symposium will be held at Claudelands from 08.00hrs Thursday 20 July. The programme is under development and updates will be posted here and emailed to all ARRO members as soon as the Technical Committee has formulated the programme.

Team members’ registration for the Challenge includes free registration for the Learning Symposium. All competing team members will attend the one day Learning Symposium as a condition of their participation.

Other interested agency staff, volunteers and visitors are invited to register and attend all sessions.

Extrication Challenge

The traditional 3 class Extrication Challenge (EC) is the mainstay of the Australasian Rescue Challenge and is offered again to participants in 2017.

This series of Challenges is designed for a 6-person rescue team, including a Team Leader/OIC and medical specialist.

The 3 classes all vary slightly in objective and opportunity to demonstrate skills.

For more details on the classes and their objectives, please login to the ARRO website and download a copy of the rules.

Trauma Challenge

The Trauma Challenge (TC) continues is a staple part of the programme.

This 2-person 15 minute event is designed to hone the medical skills of team members. Teams will be assessed based on the level of medical skill they bring to the challenge, so its a perfect opportunity for everyone from first aiders to advanced care paramedics to demonstrate best practice at their level.

Every 6-person EC team that registers automatically has one pair of their team entered in the TC.
