Advanced Outdoor First Aid

3 Day Advanced Outdoor First Aid courses

Our 3 day advanced first aid courses are aimed at training outdoor professionals and travellers who operate overseas in wilderness environments that are far from help. We have approached this course with our own vast experience of leading overseas expeditions knowing what situations you are likely to face and with what kit you are likely to be carrying. To that end the course is designed for first-aiders, but because you may find yourself in some pretty remote places with few resources readily to hand, with experienced trainers leading this course we go beyond the realms of traditional first aid.  We aim to give delegates on this course the skills and the confidence to face a whole host of situations from managing trauma to the very common problems of an upset stomach.

I took the two-day outdoor first aid course run by Will4Adventure and found it very instructive and informative, as well as enjoyable! It was hands on with practise of possible real world scenarios, which really helped cement the training. I would recommend the course and will certainly use them again for any refresher courses when needed.

I've done quite a few first aid courses and this has been the best, by far. I feel confident if I came across an incident that I would deal with it, and remember the most important things to do.

2 day outdoor training course with Will. He was the perfect outdoor first aid teacher. Informative and funny which helped you remember. Patient and supportive as well as stretching the course members. Very positive experience for me which could easily have been stressful when you’re learning how to help a casualty. Would highly recommend.

I've just completed, Outdoor First Aid Emergency Action run by Lizzy. It was an excellent, engaging and interesting day. I learnt and was reminded of so much. I feel much better prepared for dealing with a first aid incident in the outdoors and look forward to coming back in 3 years!

I have done countless firts aid course and requalifications over the last 25 years and Will 4 Adventures Outdoor First Aid Course has given me some new skills as well as refreshing some older ones. The views from the venue were pretty good and suitable weather arranged to practice the importance of insulating a casualty. Very good course and a good local cake shop.

The first aid course was excellent - really useful, engaging and relevant, real life examples / situations to make it very realistic. I would really recommend this for anyone wanting to up their skills and decision making abilities in first aid situations. Thanks

I attended a 2-day Outdoor First Aid course run by Will4Adventure. It was excellent! Lizzy who ran the course was extremely professional, yet the tone was fun and engaging despite it being two long days of learning. The language was inclusive and I was glad that the course considered administering first aid to people of different skin tones and body abilities (for example, checking the lips for paleness rather than the face, and performing the Heimlich manoeuvre on people in wheelchairs or pregnant people). Overall 10/10 would definitely recommend
