This course is suitable for those wishing to have extended skills in mountain or wilderness first aid, to help a casualty in remote areas, to take control of an incident in a hazardous environment and direct others. Successful completion of the course results in a first aid certificate specifically for outdoor activities.  This outdoor first aid course is accepted by the major Governing Body Awards: Mountain Training, British Canoe Union, British Cycling, MIAS, CTC, Nordic Walking to name a few.  For higher levels of NGB’s the applicant needs to make sure that the first aid qualification taken is suitable for the environment where they will operate: for a complete list please contact 01433 621484.  This course has a focus on practical work and includes scenarios involving casualty simulation (moulage or fake wounds and blood) with learning outside in a variety of wilderness terrain.  If you only need an eight hour course, please contact us and you can attend for that time period paying either £90 inc VAT for eight hours and if you decide you need to learn more you can stay for the full two days on balance of the payment.
