Outdoor First Aid – 2 Day

A 2 day first aid course designed for people leading and playing in the outdoors environment! Most of this course will be spent outside, looking at real situations that you could find yourself in whilst out in the countryside, mountains and rivers.


The recurring theme is that of adapting first aid principles to deal with people in a cold, wet, wilderness environment, where help may be a long way away.


Topics covered include:

-Primary and secondary survey, and adaptations to deal with a casualty in outdoors kit

-CPR and EAV

-Using a Defibrillator

-Dealing with airway problems

-Deformities and injuries


-Immobilisation of breaks, including improvisation with items of outdoors kit

-Managing a suspected spinal injury

-Looking after a casualty for an extended period

-Evacuation of a casualty from the environment


-Contents of a good outdoors first aid kit, and other kit to carry with you


There is scope for this course to be adapted to the needs of the participants, whether you are coaching kayaking to kids on your local pond, or are out with friends on the mountains every weekend!


On successful completion of the course, you will receive a 2 day Nuco first aid certificate, widely regarded as the best out there for outdoors sports, and accepted by most NGB’s (including Paddle UK). This course meets the Paddle UK requirements for leaders and level 3 and above coaches.
