This outdoor first aid course tops up a regular 8 hour first aid certificate to make the equivalent of a 2 day Forest School first aid. It is crucial if working outdoors with groups to have the knowledge and skills to manage first aid appropriately. If you do this course you will be well equipped to administer emergency first aid in an outdoor location where you might be a bit further away from the first aid room.

This course covers all elements of outdoor first aid covered on any Forest School first aid course.  This includes first aid for impalement, burns, how to safely move a patient from a remote location, insect stings/allergies, poisoning from toxic plants and stick injuries. Participants will receive a certificate from our partner training company First Aid Academy. The certificate is valid for 3 years.
