Outdoor First Aid


Our most popular outdoor first aid option is the two-day REC Level 2 course which fulfils the requirements of the major outdoor National Governing Bodies for first aid training (e.g. MLTUK, BCU), certificated through Rescue Emergency Care.


We also deliver the two-day Forest Schools First Aid course covering paediatric topics in the context of outdoor and woodland education, certificated through ProTrainings and endorsed by TQUK. Please contact us for more details.


Finally, we can tailor the 6-hour Emergency First Aid at Work qualification for those working in the outdoors who do not have NGB qualifications.
