What Will You Learn On An Outdoor First Aid Course?

Having first aid skills is useful for absolutely anybody. However, in certain jobs it’s essential, including for those people working in remote locations. 

If you work in the great outdoors, you might have to help someone in a remote location, where the nearest medical assistance takes a long time to arrive. In the meantime, you could have the ability to save someone’s life, whether through CPR or controlling their bleeding. 

Fresh Air Training covers a wide range of topics on our outdoor first aid course. Our training is ideal for those working as an Outdoor Pursuits Instructor or a Forest school leader.

Along with learning how to assess a situation, you’ll learn a host of practical skills to help you act in a medical emergency. 

These include putting someone in the recovery position, using a defibrillator, how to control bleeding, dealing with shock (including Anaphylaxis), heart attacks, sprains and strains, eye injuries, and medical conditions like epilepsy, diabetes, and asthma.
