First Aid for Outdoor Education
Leading groups of people in remote areas, or participating in outdoor activities can bring with it unknown hazards.  Common injuries sustained in the outdoors range from simple cuts and grazes to broken limbs, head and back injuries and hypothermia.  Being prepared to deal with any emergency should always form part of your emergency plan and you should be prepared to deal effectively with first aid related incidents when working in this environment.
Delays in emergency service attendance times, lack of effective communication and difficulty in evacuation of casualties all present additional problems for the first aider when working outdoors.  The focus of the First Aid for Outdoor Education programme addresses these issues.  Students receive training in providing first aid for longer periods than would be expected in more urban environments.
Techniques such as splinting, ongoing casualty management and evacuation are all covered during the programme in addition to more general first aid techniques.  The course is delivered with lots of practical scenarios and is ideally suited to a residential style two day programme with access to outdoors for the practical element of the programme.
This course has been designed to meet the content requirements of BELA, MLTE, BCU and RYA and is also an excellent programme to meets the requirements of leadership for Duke of Edinburgh Award, Scout and Guide Associations
This course covers the basic essentials required to provide emergency care to a patient where emergency services may be remote or delayed from the incident location.  Candidates will receive training in a range of first aid skills including:
  • Assess and prioritise a first aid incident in remote areas, including multiple casualties scenarios
  • Deal with an unconscious casualty
  • Perform basic life support
  • Control bleeding and manage shock
  • Monitor and record casualties condition
