Come along on the 20 February 2014 to learn vital life-saving skills, should somebody stop breathing or suffer severe bleeding. Attending the one day first aid course will make you eligible for the nationally recognised Emergency First Aid at Work certificate.

You can also attend a second day, leading to the Outdoor First Aid (16hrs) certificate. Suitable for those requiring a higher level of knowledge and operating further from help. This active and practical course is customised to the learners, and is perfect for instructors requiring NGB revalidation.

I thought the course was very clear and well delivered. There was a lot of discussion about first aid areas and topics as a group, which was a lot more interactive than I have experienced on other first aid courses. The tutor did a great job throughout, tailoring the information to our venue.

As an added bonus, all students will receive a money-off voucher from Nomad Travel to spend on clothing or first aid equipment.
