Have just completed a 16 hour outdoor first-aid course with this outfit. I arranged it at short notice and nothing seemed too much trouble to Will in providing details and information which was delivered in very comprehensive and professional email form. The actual course was delivered by "Stu" at Awesome Walls, Sheffield. He was an excellent facilitator with a personable manner and the expected repertoire of rubbish jokes. He delivered at an appropriate pace and was knowledgeable in answering questions. Apart from a mandatory written multi choice exercise on the first day, continuous assessment was the name of the game and helped relieve potential stress. I will certainly consider returning in 3 years time and would highly recommend their courses based on my experience. Mike Conlon

I recently completed an Outdoor First Aid course and found it both engaging and highly informative. I struggle to stay awake if I'm sat down for too long so the mixture of lecturing, demonstrations and practical skill checks were great. Would definitely recommend. Cheers Will4Adventure and thanks Stu for the nuggets of wisdom!

Excellent Outdoor First Aid course! I have attended first aid courses in the past and come away feeling overwhelmed by all the information. Not so for this course! Will made the course very practical with lots of practice of primary and secondary survey, CPR, and putting casualties into the Safe Airway Position so these steps start to become second nature. We each had a Resuscitation mannequin and defib to use, so there was no waiting turns. This was followed by practical, realistic scenarios to test our knowledge and skills. Will's explanations made it easy to work out the appropriate First Aid in different scenarios and I feel much more confident that I'd be able to respond appropriately if/when I'm next faced with a casualty. Highly recommended.

An excellent Outdoor First Aid Course run by Lizzy from Will4adventure. Her enthusiasm and ability to relate scenarios to real life situations that we might find ourselves in was really useful. Highly recommend this training from Will4adventure and will definitely be back when needing to renew my qualification. Thank you Lizzy.

Will's Outdoor First Aid course was superbly clear and well structured with plenty of practical exercises. In 2 days he covers Band 4 where many courses are only Band 3, which also means that many attendees are outdoor professionals which as an "outdoor amateur" I found to be great. I thoroughly recommend.

Stu is an excellent instructor delivering what could be a very dry syllabus with boundless energy under difficult conditions due to Covid. Informative & makes you think how to adapt first aid to real outdoor conditions. Good choice of first aid scenarios.

I’ve been going on first aid courses for more than 25 years and this is the third time I have attended the Emergency Outdoor First Aid training with Will4Adventure. This is really high quality, engaging, and effective training. I will definitely be back.

Lizzy ran a brilliant couple of days for us at Will4Adventure. They were informative, enjoyable and I'm coming away a lot more savvy and capable of dealing with all the first aid situations I'm likely to encounter as a forest school outdoor leader. Can't recommend enough!

I did 'Outdoor First Aid' course with Will and found it to be a really informative course with lots of practical opportunities to hone knowledge and skills. Will is an engaging, encouraging and knowledgeable with a fantastic teaching style that gives plenty of biological and anatomical background, in an easy-to-understand manner, to help cement knowledge into your brain. This course has given me confidence to perform first aid outdoors. Highly recommend.

HSE Due Diligence questions

Since 1st October 2013, the HSE has stopped issuing ‘training numbers’, to first aid training companies. This now means that the business or individual which contracts a First Aid Training Company is required to carry out due diligence on that Training Provider.

Although the HSE cannot advise you on this, it has published a list of questions that you should be asking of the provider – Selecting a first-aid training provider.

To save time, we have the questions here, along with our answers! Will4Adventure meets these HSE requirements for all of our First Aid training courses. Additionally the HSE now states that if a business requires specialist first aid training they can take an appropriate course such as an Outdoor First Aid course instead of the First Aid at Work course.
