High Peak First Aid has eight outdoor first aid courses running every month. These first aid courses for the outdoors are recognised and have been accepted by the major governing bodies for the past twenty years. These governing bodies are the British Canoeing, Mountain Training, MBCUK, MIAS and British Caving Association. For a complete list please contact us. At High Peak First Aid, we named our outdoor courses wilderness first aid back in 2001. A wilderness environment is defined as a remote location an hour from definitive medical care. These wilderness first aid courses are suitable for those who may need to perform first aid in a remote environment or under hazardous conditions.
For those who are leading groups on expeditions in remote areas, we offer modular based first aid courses. The three-day wilderness first aid course is a favourite for many universities who are sending students and lecturers on field trips. The High Peak Wilderness First Aid Modules 4 and 5 are categorised as medic assist and ensure a participant is a valuable assistant to a qualified expedition medic. The High Peak Wilderness First Aid Modules 1-5 are held once a month and include the Haemostat and Tourniquet training to comply with current guidelines for the outdoors and industry.
Training in the use of Haemostats such as Celox, the Mechanical Advantage Tourniquet (MAT Tourniquet) and Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT Tourniquet) takes place regularly at our training facility at Hope, in the Peak District. We are now providing the Haemostat and Tourniquet training every Tuesday and every Friday: courses are guaranteed to run. We can also travel out to your venue to provide training to enable participants to deal with life threatening bleeding. We have ample free parking on site and are ideally placed for public transport by train with links to Manchester and Sheffield, so within easy access of Manchester Airport.
