This one-day course gives a participant the necessary first aid competencies to deal with an incident where help can be summoned. High Peak Wilderness First Aid 8hrs has been accepted by Governing Bodies for outdoor pursuits for the last 27 years. This first aid course is suitable to validate Mountain Training qualifications such as:

We only take eight people per course and not the industry standard of 12; we want you to have more time for practical work.  Each participant receives a waterproof first aid guide and access to a learning portal for three years to ensure they are up to date.
