Emergency Outdoor First Aid

The 1 Day (8 Hour), Emergency Outdoor First Aid course is designed to give individuals a grounding in remote first aid, to enable you to deal with emergencies when help is not immediately to hand.

At First Aid Bristol we have built a fantastic reputation for our outdoor courses. Our outdoor first aid courses have been designed by our head instructor Indie Lyndale. She has over 30 years experience working in the outdoors as a teacher and extreme sports instructor, both at home in the UK and also as an international mountain guide. Exceeding the recommendations by the HSE for the Emergency Outdoor First Aid syllabus, our courses focus on practical skills and real life scenarios.

What This Course Covers

If you work or spend time in the outdoors, having a good understanding of first aid is essential. Being able to treat an injury or prolong life can become vital when help is further away. 

This course is very practical and we use scenario training to reinforce learning which builds real confidence and empowers candidates to act when emergencies arise.

Difficult and stressful situations can become even more dangerous when you are in harsh environments or unpredictable weather. Having the appropriate skill set can save your life and the lives of others around you.

This 1-day course is designed to give the individual a grounding in remote first aid. This course exceeds the recommendations of the HSE Emergency Outdoor First Aid course syllabus and is valid for a period of 3 years.

This course is ideal for anyone who spends time outdoors or in remote places. From walkers to cyclists, climbers to farmers.

All of our instructors are highly trained and experienced with real life emergencies and they bring this knowledge to their courses.

If you are an outdoor instructor looking to gain a qualification for a job in the outdoors then you will most likely need to attend one of our 2 Day Outdoor First Aid courses. If you have any doubt about the required qualification for your particular field either contact your governing body or give us a call.

HSE Training Requirements

As an employers it is now commonplace to have first aid trained staff. This is to guarantee a safe working environment for both your staff and your clients.
Depending on your business you can have very different first aid requirements so we have various first aid courses to choose form.
As of 2013 the HSE made changes that primarily put onus on the individual or employer to establish the most relevant first aid qualification for your particular environment and needs.
To establish the most relevant route for you or your business you should start with a risk assessment. This should highlight the most obvious areas of danger and from there the right course should be clear.
If you are unsure please get in touch and we will help point you in the right direction however we cannot provide legal advice and it will be up to you to make the final decision on which course you need.


All of our first aid courses comply with the latest guidelines from the Resuscitation Council UK and the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidance on First Aid 2016.
