About the Outdoor First Aid Course

Outdoor First Aid presents rescuers with the unique situation of prolonged care of a patient in a remote area before help arrives. This means that the rescuer is responsible for providing first aid care for the victim until help arrives.

The rescuer may be faced with many challenges, including:

  • The need to improvise first aid equipment and supplies because not all of them will be available in remote environments.
  • The need to provide long-term care because help may not arrive for hours.
  • The need to provide emergency care when there are no emergency supplies or equipment available.

This course adheres to Band 3 of the Institute for Outdoor Learning Outdoor First Aid Training Framework and is approved by the First Aid Industry Body.

We have developed our 16-hour outdoor first aid course to be as practical and as real as it gets. The realistic casualty scenarios really bring the course to life and are a highly effective way of learning how to provide first aid. One of the many unique elements of this course is the proven neuroscience of staying calm in an emergency, skills which are now used by special forces.

We gradually build up your skills and knowledge backed up by a realistic scenario putting it all together.

You are assessed on the outdoor first aid course but it is an ongoing assessment, this removes any of the formal exam nerves.

You will not see a single PowerPoint slide on your course! So far we have never had a complaint about this one.

Whether you’re an outdoor pursuits instructor, tree surgeon, estate worker, or simply someone who enjoys the great outdoors, our training courses are designed to equip you with the necessary skills to handle emergencies in remote locations.
