Our Activity First Aid training course is designed to empower individuals with first aid knowledge and skills to attend to any accident or illness that a person may have whilst participating in activities and in particular in the outside or remote areas. The outdoor environment nearly always means that any casualty will need to be looked after for a longer timescale than is typical in more urban settings.
What are the benefits of Activity First Aid training and who should attend?
Our Activity First Aid training course provides the appropriate skills to manage an incident in a remote location, where emergency medical assistance could be hours away or where accidents are more likely as a result of activities such as sports, walking, hiking and physical exercises. This course is ideal for people who have responsibility for taking groups of people on activity outings such as outdoor walks or bike rides, and in particular for members and leaders of activity and youth groups.
