This course fulfils 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. It also covers the First Aid criteria for British Canoeing (BC), Girl Guides and Scouts. 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.
There is sufficient content in this course to satisfy the requirements of the HSE in respect of Emergency First Aid at Work. An additional certificate for minimal cost can be provided to evidence this to an employer.
A range of outdoor First Aid related subjects are covered including:
A minimum of 16 hours spread over at least two days.
Ideally, the course should be run over two consecutive days, but we have the flexibility to accommodate your specific needs if you so desire providing it is completed within 10 weeks of starting the course and the training sessions last for a minimum of two hours.
Summative practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor each day, along with a written assessment on each day. No external assessors are required. A range of methods are used, including, practical and questioning (open and multiple-choice).
Subject to successful assessment you will be awarded the Level 3 Award in Outdoor First Aid which is valid for three years.
A maximum of 12 delegates are allowed and must be a minimum of 16 years of age. A learner cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.
