Our Level 3 Outdoor First Aid 2 day/ 16 hour courses are all run in a practical, hands-on manner, using multiple role-play scenarios to give candidates opportunities to practice the application of a variety of First Aid techniques in an outdoor environment.
We will spend the minimum amount of time necessary in the classroom covering theory sessions, and as much time as we possibly can outdoors, applying practical First Aid skills and incident management techniques to a variety of scenarios. You’ll update what you have forgotten and practice doing what you need to do when it all goes wrong.
