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.

We use realistic first aid scenarios and you will spend a lot of time outdoors. You’ll put your skills to the test away from the comfort of the classroom, and see how they hold up in a real-world situation.

Wilderness Development’s Outdoor First Aid course featured in the news this week!

It was an intense weekend, but very enjoyable and importantly informative – all leaders were satisfied that they left with the knowledge they would need if ever presented with a real first aid situation.

We run these courses several times a month, and all the info can be found online at http://www.wilderness-development.com/first-aid/outdoor-first-aid

Outdoor First Aid course 18-19 December 2013

Outdoor First Aid (16 hours over 2 days)

As well as being eligible to receive the nationally recognised Emergency First Aid at Work certificate, we’ll also cover topics specifically tailored to outdoor pursuits leaders and participants, including cold injuries, broken bones and medical emergencies like diabetes.

 I was dreading two days doing 1st Aid – especially at a weekend. 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.
