Recent ‘Outdoor First Aid (16hr)’ News
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.

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.
