May the 4th Be With You – Padawan to Jedi (exam resource)

Any of you that have done the fellowship exam or are studying for the fellowship exam will know you need a little ‘something’ to help you through. Whether that’s a Jedi Master FACEM or perhaps you are naturally high in midichlorians but with the recent outbreak of covid19 it feels like Darth Vadar has done one of his death grips around the study jugular.

Fear not though, Jedi Masters such as James Hayes (of the Victorian study group for the past 16 years), Sith Lords like Amit Maini (Alfred Trauma DEMT, Australian EMRAP and the Procedures Course) have banded together to provide a free online resource for trainees. Yes, yes, Jedi and Sith working together, there will be positives from this outbreak (and we all know Sith eventually redeem themselves).

This resource is packed with up to date notes on over 1600 emergency conditions from Jame’s collection of teaching summaries, history and the arts, exam style audio review on the main topics and I hear rumours of more rebels providing content daily to Sith Lord Amit. This resource aims to collate as much exam material across the galaxy as can be useful to trainees and for it to be accessible in one unique space.

So while we are all under the pump and donned in more equipment than a bounty hunter, many FACEMs can not imagine trying to do what you do everyday and then have to go home and try to study in isolation. For you, we raise a virtual glass of your favourite tipple and present:
