Outdoor First Aid Courses
Exciting First Aid Scenarios
In remote locations help will not be immediately available so you will have to deal with the situation, get it under control and wait or go for help. Mobile phones do not always work so you may have to rely on your own knowledge and resources to deal with the first aid situation.
An outdoor first aid course will give you the confidence to act in a first aid situation way from immediate help. It could be something simple like a cut but it may be more life threatening such as a head injury and your actions could save a life.
Accidents can be avoided if we prepare ourselves for the environment we are working in, in the outdoors this means wearing the right clothes for the weather, dressing warmly preparing for wet weather, eating enough food, carrying a first aid kit.
As long as you are prepared, even if an accident occurs you will be more prepared to deal with a first aid situation and therefore more likely to get a positive outcome for your patient.
All these skills can be learnt on one of our first aid courses and once you have these skills you will feel empowered to act in a first aid emergency. We will also look at scenarios where more than one group member is injured and methods of evacuation from remote locations. Instructors have much experience with real life emergencies and they bring this knowledge to the classroom.
Our courses are practical and fun, we use scenario based learning to re-enforce
