Over 21 years we have trained over 25.000 people with the courses being accepted by the major governing bodies such as the Mountain Training Association, British Canoeing and MIAS to name a few.

There is the option to also attend the First Response Emergency Care Level 3 after the High Peak Wilderness First Aid Course. If this option is taken, we deduct the £144 off the cost of the FREC 3 course. Details of FREC 3 can be seen here.

High Peak First Aid has eight outdoor first aid courses a month held at our training facility in the Peak District. These 16hr first aid courses meet the requirements for a number of governing bodies. Following the links to these organisations will demonstrate the requirements for each sport. Hillwalking and climbing activities are supported by the Mountain Training Association and paddle sport by British Canoeing.
Mountain biking has a number of awarding bodies such as MIAS (Mountain-bike Instructors Award Scheme). British Cycling states that training providers should meet criteria as laid down by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Mountain Bike Coaching (MBC UK) also lays down clear guidelines.
High Peak First Aid 16hr first aid courses for the outdoors are not limited to the above sports, so please contact us if further details are needed. All of our first aid courses offer you the opportunity to learn in two dedicated classrooms before skills are transferred to a variety of wilderness terrain. We are lucky to be situiated in the middle of private land in the Hope Valley, Peak District which gives us immediate access to the outdoors.
We are not limited to outdoor first aid for the UK. There is the opportunity to take a three day first aid training course for expedition leaders. The Wilderness First Aid Modules 1-3 is popular for those taking expeditions overseas and is currently accepted by a number of leading expedition providers. If you are short on time, it is possible to attend the Wilderness First Aid Module 3 for one day to add on to your existing first aid training.
There is also the option of taking your first aid training up a notch to attend the First Response Emergency Care suite of qualifications. High Peak First Aid is a Qualsafe approved centre (no: 906483) for the provision of the First Response Emergency Care Level 3 and the First Response Emergency Care Level 4. To complete your guided learning hours High Peak First Aid can offer you modules from the range of courses to include topics such as altitude illness, bites and stings, and expedition medical kits. This approach makes a truly unique outdoor qualification that not only prepares you for working in a remote seeting but may just give you the edge when applying for a post as an expedition leader. Your guided learning hours can demonstrate your interests and knowledge.
All of the above first aid courses include training in the use of haemostats and tourniquets as laid down in the current European Resuscitation Council Guidelines.

Free outdoor first aid training is currently available for anyone who is considering taking the First Response Emergency Care Level 3 at High Peak First Aid. The outdoor first aid courses have been recognised by the major governing bodies for outdoor education for the past twenty years. Details for the outdoor first aid courses can be seen here. The First Response Emergency Care Level 3 is a five day regulated qualification plus guided learning hours. The FREC 3 is an ideal opportunity to gain a regulated qualification combined with guided learning hours orientated to the outdoor environment and specific to the individual. The High Peak Wilderness First Aid 16hr course can be used as part of the guided learning hours and we offer full support for free after the FREC 3 to complete the learning.
This would be an ideal opportunity for a person who hopes to gain expedition work in the uk or overseas, for event first aiders who are likely to work in more remote prehospital settings and for those who provide first aid cover at motocross events. It would be ideally suited to security consultants working on contracts in remote or hostile environments where help may be delayed.
