A 16 hour, practical, scenario based course designed as an introduction to first aid in an outdoor or remote environment. The course is very practical and the Trainer uses a mixture of outdoor scenarios to simulate injuries found in a variety of outdoor incidents. During these scenarios, you experience being a first responder and a casualty giving a more rounded learning experience.
Assessment: Continuous throughout the course with a multiple choice paper.
Certification: A BASP Outdoor Emergency First Aid certificate valid for 3 years.
Suitable for outdoor professionals looking for an NGB recognised certificate and for outdoor enthusiasts looking to equip themselves for their chosen activities. Ideal for those who want a ‘hands on’ practical course.

We will do some outdoor scenarios in the Lodge grounds. You will need appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear; boots, waterproof jacket, waterproof trousers (which are likely to get dirty and wet), hat, gloves, head net, midge repellent (as they can be bad in the summer).
Excellent course delivered in a very practical way. Easily the best first aid course I have attended.
