The course can be easily adapted through the inclusion of appropriate outdoor scenarios to meet the needs of the outdoor world.
This regulated and nationally recognised qualification provides Learners with the skills and knowledge needed to deal with a range of emergency first aid situations that can arise in both adults and children whilst taking part in outdoor or activity based environments.
