Course Description

Due to social distancing, we are only taking six people.  As a result of this the fee has increased but will include:

  • All PPE.  We are using face masks that are light weight already trialled on three courses and the feedback has been very positive.
  • Six people per course will ensure you receive more practical sessions.
  • You will receive one mannequin per person with face shield
  • The immersive classroom is up and running so that we can simulate any environment within our facility.  WE do still go outdoors as there is plenty of varied, wilderness terrain on our door step.  You can see what an immersive classroom is here

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 and contains an element of assessment.   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.  A set of procedures are taught that can be adapted to suit any event or environment giving participants a structure to work to.  This will ensure participants feel confident to deal with an incident in a remote or wilderness environment where help is delayed.  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.

This course includes certification for 16hrs that is valid for three years.  Emergency First Aid at Work 6hr (at no extra cost) is also included as these topics are embedded into this module.  There is also one mannequin per delegate (industry standard 1:4) and a robust waterproof manual.  By attending this course you are also eligible for discounted first aid supplies sold from our shop on site.

Courses are every Wednesday/Thursday and every weekend throughout the year apart from Bank Holiday weekends.
