Forest School First Aid 16 Hour Course

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 Forest School First Aid does exactly that!

Forest School First Aid is indeed a specific discipline in Emergency Care because it presents the rescuer with the unique situation of prolonged care of a patient in a remote area before definitive 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 required compared to the urban setting.

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

3 reviews for Forest School First Aid 16 Hour Course

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. Cassie Turvill-smith

    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.
