This practical, scenario based course affords candidates the opportunity to practice skills and contextualise theory in realistic situations.
The two-day (16 hour) course draws on the most recent peer-reviewed evidence for the initial treatment of injuries and illnesses in remote areas. As such, some protocols would not be appropriate in an urban setting.
Course content is based on current guidelines published by:
UK Resuscitation Council
National Institute of Clinical Healthcare Excellence
Joint Royal College of Ambulances Liaison Committee
Royal College of Surgeons Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care
Wilderness Medical Society
currently accepted guidance and best-practice from advisory bodies and published evidence for the treatment of First Aid in a remote or wilderness context.
Designed expressly for those who work or play far from help, this course satisfies the criteria for First Aid training for all Outdoor NGB qualifications including MLT, British Canoeing, Canoe Wales, NCLA, and RYA.
