ITC 16 Hour Outdoor First Aid Course

ITC 16 Hour Outdoor First Aid Course

ITC 16 Hour Outdoor First Aid Course

This 16 hour course over 2 Days is widely regarded as the Gold Standard First Aid qualification for those working in the Outdoor Education Industry.   The course is very focussed on the likelihood that any first aid incident is probably in remote country with poor access, and that the weather will almost certainly be inclement.  Participants have the opportunity to develop the skills they will need to care for casualties in that setting for an extended post incident period.

In that sort of scenario taking full account of one's responsibilities for a group and a dynamic, ever-changing situation is essential.  This is quite unlike the assumption made in most other courses that an ambulance will arrive in a few minutes.

On our Outdoor First Aid course all instruction is delivered by qualified First Aid Instructor/Assessors who are also full call out members of a Mountain Rescue Team with more than 100 years' experience between them.  Our Instructors also hold Mountain Leader, Cave Leader, SPA (Rock Climbing), Ski Instructor and RYA Sailing Instructor qualifications.  They are all very experienced Duke of Edinburgh Award Assessors and Supervisors.

This course includes a hot lunch and tea, coffee and biscuits in the afternoon both days.
