While we are operating during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have changed to the way that we deliver our advanced outdoor first aid qualifications. These changes are in line with the Scottish Government’s Advice, and also our Awarding Body, ITC First.
Firstly, the sessions will take place entirely outdoors in our new outdoor classroom. We have created clear, socially distanced areas within the classroom for each learner to work. These areas are numbered, and each learner is designated an area. At the current time, there will be no more than six learners on each course. Each learner will receive a box containing all the equipment that they require, and a mannikin to use throughout the course.
Our COVID-19 joining instructions provide more information to these adaptations.
Advanced Outdoor First Aid Course Prerequisites
To get the most out of this course, you must have a current and valid first aid certificate with an outdoor element to attend this course. If you don’t have a suitable certificate, then have a look at our outdoor first aid course, forest school first aid, emergency first aid at work + F, or first aid at work + F courses. This is vital to ensure that you have an understanding of the basic concepts which we will build on.
If you are not sure that this course is suitable for you, then why not take our short minute quiz. This quiz will help you decide if this course is suitable for you.
What do I need to bring on the advanced outdoor first aid course?
You should arrive with clothing suitable for being in the outdoors. You will spend much of the course outdoors. We recommend that you bring the following:
- Waterproof Jacket
- Waterproof Trousers
- Fleece or Soft Shell
- Insulated Jacket
- Head torch
- Sun cream (we can hope!)
If you are driving, we would recommend leaving spare clothing in your vehicle. You’ll need to bring your lunch, but we will provide tea and coffee.
Who be the trainer on my advanced outdoor first aid course?
