We offer Outdoor First Aid (2 day) courses on these dates:

The two days flew by; we had fun; enjoyed ourselves thoroughly especially the outdoors elements and the staged car crash; most importantly I learned more than I thought possible about 1st Aid. An excellent course led by an excellent trainer. Thank you.

“It was one of the best First Aid courses I have been on, having the opportunity to run though multiple outdoor scenarios was very useful, and the way it was adapted it to everyones particular situation and sport was excellent. I have recommended you.”
