OUTDOOR FIRST AID, CPR & AED COURSE

COURSE OVERVIEW

For any outdoor activity leader, first aid is an essential skill and governing bodies require leaders, guides and instructors to hold a current first aid qualification. To obtain an Outdoor First Aid Certificate for many of these governing bodies the minimum requirement is that such a course must involve at least two full days or sixteen hours of instruction and include an element of assessment.

Candidates are further expected to undertake such additional elements of first aid training as are consistent with their work in wild and remote country, including emergency assistance and evacuation techniques. It is the responsibility of award holders and/or their employers to evaluate their likely work and the type of situations that they can reasonably expect to encounter and to maintain current appropriate first aid training and qualifications.

Our Outdoor First Aid Course (2 Day) comprises of Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) modules, which make up the foundational offering in emergency care for the lay provider, integrating First Aid, CPR & AED skills into an easy to remember sequence, allowing participants to provide effective emergency care to injured or ill adults.
