About the Course
The knowledge required to provide life saving skills should be made as simple as possible, to allow you to work as best as possible in a stressful situation. Our First Aid at Work + F (FAW + F) will achieve exactly that!
First Aid at Work + F (FAW + F) is a specific discipline in First Aid because it presents the First Aider with the unique situation of prolonged care of a patient in a Forestry setting before definitive medical care can be provided. In this situation, the Ambulance Service may be delayed due to difficult access. Therefore, in light of this, a number of additional skills and considerations are required compared to the urban setting.
Who is this course for?
This course provides the First Aid training as identified as one of the standards for working on Forestry Commission managed land.
