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.

Excellent Outdoor First Aid course from Will. As well as seeming technically very experienced Will is empathetic and brings the learning experience to life and makes it fun, Will also tries to make it relate to the learner's interests. Highly recommended

Very enjoyable and effective outdoor first aid course with trainer Stu from Will4adventure. Excellent and engaging course.
As someone who had never done a first aid course before, the course leaders were very encouraging and helpful with lots of extra practical tips if we ever had to use our new skills.

Absolutely brilliant outdoor first aid course in Camberley. Real experience, real and relevant scenario’s and a fun group made the ‘compulsory 2 day revalidation’ both enjoyable and I came away better and more confident 😃

Really informative and engaging ITC Outdoor First Aid courses. Left feeling confident in what I'd learned, having done a number of these courses now I can honestly say Will's courses are of the highest standard. Would highly recommend.
