Activity First Aid (2 days)

The outdoor environment nearly always means that the casualty has to be looked after for a longer timescale than is typical in a more urban setting

What are the benefits of this course

Our Outdoor First Aid course provides the appropriate skills to manage an incident in a remote location, where emergency medical assistance could be many hours away. This course is ideal for people who have responsibility for taking groups of people on activity outings such as outdoor walks or bike rides, and in particular for members and leaders of activity and youth groups.

Key points of the Activity First Aid course:

  • Define their role as an emergency first aider, and how to communicate effectively when dealing with a casualty.
  • Describe how to minimise risks to themselves and others.
