This course has been purposefully designed for those who work as instructors or rescuers and has successfully been taught to people from search and rescue teams to expedition members. The course is challenging and provides you with the time to really get to grips with your new skills with extended casualty scenarios and a greater opportunity to learn about minor injuries, longer term monitoring and casualty management. This course still emphasises the basics and will provide massive amounts of confidence in dealing with emergencies on the hill.
The course is accepted by a huge range of outdoor sports National Governing Bodies as sufficient first aid training for their instructor award schemes including – ML, SPA, BCU, WCA, RYA, SMBLT and offers a three year certificate.
The course is residential, taught over two days and includes several realistic scenarios – the majority of the training takes place on the hill in all weathers both during the day and at night to build your experience and confidence. Students are encouraged to ask questions as they are coached through the syllabus.
This is an intensive training course in a relaxed atmosphere that emphasises simple actions, relevant skills and massive participation. Its fun, challenging and a real eye opener – it is suitable for beginners.
This course can also include the HSE Emergency First Aid at Work certificate, contact our team for more information.
