Outdoor First Aid Course
Our Outdoor First Aid course has been developed for you to be able to deal with this and many other different kinds of injuries and illnesses. This comprehensive two-day course covers a wide range of First Aid emergencies, enabling all participants to deal with emergency situations with confidence in a prompt, safe and effective way, particularly where professional medical help is not immediately available.
So, imagine, one day a group of you decide to go hiking up in the Yorkshire Dales, it is a lovely sunny when you set off, you've been walking for a few hours, enjoying the beautiful Yorkshire scenery when suddenly the weather changes. It is now torrential rain and the ground is becoming very wet and slippery. One of your group slips on rock falls and badly injures themselves, they are complaining of lower back pain and are unable to move their legs. Would you know what to do?
This course fulfills the requirements of the First Aid element of the expedition syllabus and it is suitable for the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Duke of Edinburgh awards.
