Description

First aid for forest schools and other outdoor activities involving children and adults.

NOTE: this is a 16 hour course split over 2 days: 8 hours per day. This is a longer day than most other first aid courses.

IMPORTANT: please bring suitable clothing and footwear. Some training is delivered outside
(even if it is raining).

The course syllabus includes all the skills and knowledge required in the following nationally recognised qualifications:

  • Emergency First Aid at Work (6 hour)
  • Paediatric First Aid (12 hour)
  • Outdoor and Forest School First Aid (16 hour)

The certificate is valid for all 3 qualifications.

The training covers adult, child, and baby casualties.


On open/public courses we have identified suitable areas within walking distance but for private courses (at your own venue) we need to discuss this in detail: not all workplaces will be in a suitable location for this course to be delivered.

On completion of training successful candidates will be able to:

  • Understand the role of the first aider including reference to:
    • The importance of preventing cross infection
    • The need for recording incidents and actions
    • Use of available equipment
    • Access the situation and circumstances in order to act safely, promptly, and effectively in an emergency.
  • Administer first aid to a casualty who is unconscious (including seizure)
