16 Hour Outdoor First Aid course
€150 per person
The outdoor course deals with issues involved with the long term care of casualties in a remote setting. It is often referred to as a Wilderness First Aid or a Remote First Aid.
The course is suitable for outdoor enthusiasts, environmental consultants and professionals working in the outdoor industry.
The outdoor first aid course includes primary and secondary surveys of a casualty, we also look at first aid equipment and how you may adapt and improvise your own equipment to support your first aid kit.
A lot more emphasis is placed on incident management and relaying information to rescue teams. We assume minimal equipment is available. There are plenty of opportunities to apply and practice techniques, as much of the course involved scenario based exercises. As much of the course as possible is carried out in an outdoors environment, in winter this will include snow conditions.
This 2 day (16 hour) course is recognised by the National Governing Bodies such as theMountain Leader TrainingBritish Canoe UnionBritish CyclingBritish Association of Snowsport Instructors etc. Be sure to check your NGB requirements. The course is delivered by Jason Day, a qualified and practising International Mountain Leader, in accordance with the IoS guidance on choosing suitable first aid training.
