Price: £210
Course fee includes first aid manual and first aid certificate valid for three years.

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.

Course objectives include:

    • Pre-trip planning with a view to managing medical emergencies
    • Vital Signs – making informed decisions on the information you have
    • Primary and secondary surveys – prioritising first aid
    • Airway management & managing the unconscious casualty
    • Casualty monitoring in the outdoors
    • CPR with the use of AEDs (defibrillators)
    • Bleeding and catastrophic bleed management
    • Fracture management / immobilising limbs & the use of improvised splints
    • Casualty evacuation
    • Pain management considerations
    • Snake bites
    • Altitude sickness
    • Common conditions – asthma, diabetes, seizures, strokes
    • Managing sickness on a field trip
    • Triage first aid
No previous experience is expected

We know that people will join us from a plethora of backgrounds and range of experiences, but also we run our courses on the basis that everyone will have forgotten at least something since their last course, and hence no previous experience is required. We build up the learning incrementally and make sure there is plenty of practical application so that you’re never sat in your seat for long. We also accept that some people will go away having learned only a little maybe, and some will go away having learned LOADS (maybe overload) but in the main we know people enjoy our courses and go away feeling far better-prepared for situations they may face. 

Package
      • Interactive hands on practical training indoors and out
      • Use of recommended first aid kit
      • Easy to follow individual course booklet
      • An accredited, recognised certificate valid for 3 years
      • Assessment & certification for EFAW or FAW also available from £15

Note:
You will receive an E-certificate. This means that if you need a paper copy also, please let us know and add £5 to the above prices.
Additionally add £15 if you also wish to be assessed for, and certificated for Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) on the same course.

I attended a 2 day outdoor first aid course, which was very well presented. With the scenarios and the way they were taught by the tutor, it made understanding so much easier. I very much recommend it.

An extremely comprehensive, informative and practical course delivered really well - engaging, lively and at a speed that allowed us to absorb a lot of useful information without feeling overwhelmed. I highly recommend Will4Adventure - they really know the subject and put effort into sharing the information in a very accessible way!

Great Outdoor First Aid course which did what it said on the tin and more. The course tutor was first class. The venue was just right for practising our leaning outdoors. Thanks again. I thoroughly recommend Will4Adventure.

Without a doubt, the best first aid course I've attended to date. Will (and Jane) were fun, knowledgeable and approachable. Information was tailored to the needs of the group, and the repeated, realistic 'outdoor' scenarios really helped to reinforce learning and give confidence. Very highly recommended and I'm looking forward to renewal in a few years' time.
