Major outdoor scenarios will be covered use of a wide range of medical equipment, scene management and triage.

PLEASE NOTE: There are some pre-requisites to this course. We will expect Individuals to already hold a valid 2 day/16hr first aid certificate and have done at least 2 previous courses in basic first aid. This is because we need candidates to have a high standard of basic life support skills in order to complete the course. It would also be advantageous to have some outdoor first aid experience.  There will be some pre-course reading and study required before attending the course.

Assessment: Prior learning of basic first aid will be continually assessed and a formal written paper and gases assessment will have to be passed to achieve the qualification.

PLEASE NOTE: there may be an evening scenario planned for the course after 8pm. If you are not planning to stay at Glenmore Lodge, please bear in mind this might be a requirement.
