Our outdoor first aid course has been developed over the years to support those first aider’s who find themselves in a more remote environment, when professional help may be some hours away. The course has a duration of 16 hours and is a Level 5 qualification with the Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) giving this certificate National Accreditation within the UK. It fulfils the requirements of most National Governing Body Awards, MLTUK, BMG, BCU, RYA, Scouts and Guide leaders.
Essentially a two part course, day one focuses on the diagnosis and care of life threatening emergencies. The second day develops these techniques in realistic, context based outdoor scenarios. The course will also spend time on the associated aspects of incident management, particularly in group situations.
This is an intense and practical course, contextualised to meet the specific requirements of our clients. Many of the scenarios take place outside so you will need to dress accordingly. The qualification is valid for three years.
The outdoor first aid course costs £120 per person. Group bookings of up to 12 people are £850.
