About our Forest Schools First Aid course

Our awarding body ITC First Aid has a well established and long running relationship with the Key Forest School National Training Organisation. Together they have helped design this unique first aid training package. Many organisations deliver first aid courses that meet some of the needs of Forest School practitioners; however this is the only awarding organisation approved by HSE, Ofqual, and the SQA, that hasdeveloped a tailored training course supported by the main Forest School Training Organisation in England.


Our trainers come from a range of professional backgrounds such as the emergency services, the military and outdoor professionals. We aim to match instructors to your specific training requirements. They are aware of the specific needs of various outdoor environments, fully understanding the problems and judgements that have to be made when dealing with incidents in stressful, dangerous and remote situations. Learn more about our trainers and what makes them unique.


Our training is very practical and hands on with a typically 70% practical to just 30% theory. Our courses do not rely upon the usual ‘death by PowerPoint’, instead we use progressive incident scenario based training methods. Our courses teach techniques proven to work in real life incidents and not just in a classroom. Our training builds confidence and develops first aid skills into complete incident management. Read more about our training and why we get such positive reviews.


All candidates must attend the full course to qualify. Each candidate is continually assessed throughout.


The 2 day Forest School First Aid is valid for 3 years. It can be revalidated by completing another 2 day Forest School First Aid course. It is ‘highly recommended’ that work place first aiders attend an Annual Basic Skills Refresher course.
