OUTDOOR FIRST AID IS OUR MOST POPULAR COURSE.

Outdoor First Aid
Our trainer discussing the treatment of a casualty

The Outdoor First Aid course is our most popular course. The outdoor course deals with issues involved with the long-term care of casualties in a remote setting. Outdoor First Aid sometimes is referred to as Wilderness First Aid or Remote First Aid and aligns with the Institute of Outdoor Learning band 3.

The outdoor first aid course includes primary and secondary casualty surveys; we also look at first aid equipment and how you may adapt and improvise your equipment to support your first aid kit.

More emphasis is placed on incident management and relaying information to rescue teams.

We assume minimal outdoor equipment is available. There are plenty of opportunities to practice first aid.

The course is suitable for outdoor enthusiasts, environmental consultants and professionals working in the outdoor industry.

This two-day (16 hours) course meets the requirements of the National Governing Bodies such as the Mountain Leader Training, British Canoeing, British Cycling, British Association of Snowsport Instructors etc. Be sure to check your NGB requirements.
