DCP_0929 IMG00057-20101128-1504 RCT Image 4

The minimum level of First Aid training recognised by the MLTUK, BCU, BASI, ASSI, BOF and most other governing bodies - it answers the questions;


As an Outdoor professional, do you know what do you need to do when the unexpected happens..?


Do you really know exactly what you would do..? Do you really have a plan..? Do you carry an effective first aid kit..?  What should you easily carry that would help you and your casualty?


These courses explore the reality behind incidents in the outdoors, and explain clearly and with humour by Outdoor Professionals the difference between responses in urban and open countryside. You will understand the thought processes necessary to ensure effective and appropriate response by the emergency services - ensuring the best care for your casualty.


At the end of the course, you will know how your training should be planned to ensure that emergencies become controlled events where the casualty has best chance of survivability.
