Outdoor First Aid

Outdoor First Aid Courses

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

We can also tailor the 6-hour Emergency First Aid at Work qualification for those working in the outdoors who do not have NGB qualifications. We add 2 hours of appropriate topics and the certificate gained is Basic First Aid in the Outdoors.
