Why do a Residential Outdoor First Aid Course? The short answer is that you won’t just learn how to provide basic first aid treatment, but you’ll also learn how to manage a casualty, and how to prepare for their evacuation. The residential course allows an immersive experience, packed with lots of scenarios that deepen your understanding and allow you to practise the fundamentals. In addition to this, we will build on the fundamentals and increase your depth of knowledge.
The aim of our residential outdoor first aid course is to provide you with skills and experience to manage a casualty in the outdoors. During the course, you will gain hands on experience, by working through scenarios with our volunteer casualties. You’ll learn how to identify the problem, deal with it and other associated problems, and prepare the casualty until outside help arrives.
The course is accredited by Qualifications Network UK and you will have the opportunity to gain several qualifications valid for 3 years. These qualifications include, Level 3 Award in Outdoor First Aid (RQF), Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid (Managing Catastrophic Bleeding) (RQF), and for an additional small charge a Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid +F (RQF).
This course is suitable for all outdoor enthusiasts and those who require a first aid qualification for a National Governing Body Award. Our previous customers have included mountain leaders, kayak/canoe coaches, forest school leaders and Duke of Edinburgh award supervisors.
Learners love our the blended approach on our residential outdoor first aid courses, while on the course the typical day will involve workshops, skill development sessions and outdoor scenarios.
Learners should arrive with clothing suitable for being in the outdoors, after working through scenarios we will often debrief outdoors- please ensure that you have enough warm layers including gloves and hats. We will be outside during the evening and it is vital that you bring a head torch. You’ll need to bring your own lunch but we will provide tea and coffee.
Our course will be delivered by outdoor professionals who have worked across the industry. All of our trainers are trained to a very high standard of advanced outdoor first aid and are qualified trainers. Our ethos and experience allow us to deliver fun, interesting and relevant training.
