Designed as a comprehensive outdoor first aid experience. Combining First Aid in the Outdoors and Outdoor Emergency Care Management - 424, this course develops the candidates skills to provide first aids for a prolonged period and manage the situation.
Why Outdoor First Aid?
When in the outdoors or in a remote area, one of the biggest issues we are faced with is the potential for an incident requiring medical attention. Assistance could be hours away or even unable to get to you. Would you know what to do if an ambulance just was not going to be fast enough?
The Outdoor First Aid course is action-packed and will give you the confidence to look after a patient (or patients) for a longer period of time (2-12 hours). Feeding, toileting, patient care, contacting emergency services, and group management are all part of this course, you won’t find them in a standard workplace course.
Pre-planning and communication are also important when going into the outdoors - these are discussed and we can give you some great ideas and information.
