Outdoor First Aid 16 hours
Our 2 Day Outdoor First Aid Course adheres to Band 3 of the Institute for Outdoor Learning – Outdoor First Aid Training Framework.
Outdoor First Aid is a specific discipline in First Aid. Outdoor First Aid presents the rescuer with the unique situation of prolonged care of a patient in a remote area, before definitive medical care can be provided. In such situations the emergency medical services may be difficult to obtain or delayed and there are a number of different skills required compared to the urban setting.
Throughout your Outdoor First Aid course you will be presented with a number of realistic situations involving casualty make up. This will challenge and enhance the skills and knowledge you have acquired during the course.
