Outdoor First Aid Blended Learning

A NEW ONLINE APPROACH TO YOUR OUTDOOR FIRST AID COURSE!

We have developed our blended first aid course to enable effective use of your time and ensuring everyone’s safety during the Covid crisis by limiting in-person contact. The blended learning approach is delivered by online training including an evening zoom session of engagement. This ensures the learning outcomes from the online unit are met before attending the practical sessions and assessment. The practical unit one full day of scenario sessions and assessment

We also run traditional 2 day Outdoor First Aid course – click here to see more.

Both the 2 Day and the Blended approach courses are aimed for those who may be required to provide first aid in an outdoor environment where help may be up to 2 hours away.

Therefore, attendees are most commonly outdoor activity instructors.

Part of this qualification also meets the requirements for Emergency First Aiders. This is outlined in the Health and Safety (First aid) Regulations 1981 and the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1982.

Besides these open booking courses, we also offer a range of ‘bespoke’ first aid training courses to focus on your specific requirement for first aid. Please contact us for more information.

This 2 Day Outdoor first aid course is accepted by BASI for snowsports qualifications, IASI for snowsports qualifications, SSE for snowsports qualifications.
