About Our Forest School First Aid Course

Forest School First Aid is a specific discipline in Emergency Care because it presents the first aider with the unique situation of prolonged care of a patient in a remote setting before medical care can be provided. Also, and more importantly, as much as the first aid provisions are similar with children, they have the ability to deteriorate rapidly. In this situation, the emergency medical services may be difficult to obtain or delayed. Therefore, in light of this, a number of different skills and considerations are required compared to the urban setting.

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 Forest School First Aid does exactly that!

Included in this course are both adult and paediatric First Aid skills and knowledge.

Our course is approved by the First Aid Industry Body.

Who is this course for?

Forest School Leaders at any level.

2 Day Forest School First Aid Course Reviews

  1. Antigone Nikiteas

    I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for a really interesting, engaging and informative two days doing the outdoor first aid course. Of all the first aid courses I’ve done this has left me the most enthused and empowered to feel like I know what I need for my first aid kit and what help I can provide in the unfortunate event of needing to give first aid.

    The way the two of you brought scenarios to life with very realistic acting and props, whilst talking through processes clearly and inviting group interactivity has really helped those all important messages and knowledge sink in. I really appreciated hearing you’re real life stories as well.

    One particular element that I was impressed with was your focus on mental health throughout the course. It is the first, first aid course I have done where the mental health impact on both the victim of an event and particularly yourself as first aider has been thought about and the suggestions you gave for managing this were both practical and thoughtful.

    I also especially appreciated how relaxed the course was in terms of not stressing about detailed technique because that is not realistic. The learn and evaluate as we go approach really made me feel at ease and because I wasn’t stressing about being ‘tested’, it made me more open to absorbing the information and more confident to engage.

    Finally and on a more personal note, I am so glad I was doing your course as my first two days away from my 10 month old baby. Honestly, I was dreading it, but given all of the above – the relaxed atmosphere, how engaging and interactive the content was – I couldn’t have asked for a more positive distraction. And I am now really excited to share this knowledge and skills with my son when he is a little older. Thank you for being so caring and empathic to this particular circumstance throughout the course.

    Fantastic! The trainers are amazing, really knowledgeable and make the training fun and informative. Would highly recommend! The best first aid course I’ve been on.

  3. Marion

    The scenarios we took part in and the way the course was taught made you feel much more confident about your ability to deal with a first aid emergency.

  4. Samantha Cross

    This is the second time I have trained with Andy and Sean. Both times they have been fantastic. They are not interested in blinding you with complicated technique, rather they are passionate about making First Aid really accessible with methods that are effective and most importantly- memorable
