Course Details

Our 16 hour 2 Day Outdoor first aid 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.

Both above qualifications also meet 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. Note that the content of both courses are identical, except, the 16 hour course will cover some content in deeper knoledge.

Besides the 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.

The Blended Learning 12 hour Day Outdoor first aid course is accepted by BASI for snowsports qualifications, IASI for snowsports qualifications, SSE for snowsports qualifications.
