Well, what a success our Outdoor First Aid course in Callander was this week!
We had 10 individuals turn up from across the central belt of Scotland to undertake the 2 days of training.
The course was held at the McLaren Leisure Centre in Callander on th 26th and 27th April.
All candidates completed the 2 days and passed the assessments with flying colours! Well done everyone!
So what’s involved in an Outdoor First Aid course?
If you work in the outdoors or just have a passion for adventure then this is the perfect course to keep you safe.
It covers first aid in the outdoors where help can be a number of hours away.
The course runs over 2 days usually from 9am-6pm both days.
You will cover a range of topics that will help you in an emergency. These are;
– Recovery position
– Major illnesses
– Leg and arm injuries
– Heat stroke and hyperthermia
– First aid kits
– As well as outdoor specific scenarios and outdoor incident management
The course will answer your questions from when or how to remove boots, helmets etc to looking after a casualty for a number of hours.
The course is very practical so you can test all of your new learned skills making you more confident if something was to happen.
The course is continually assessed throughout the day with a brief multiple choice question at the end to test your knowledge. But don’t worry, the instructor is there to help.
And after all of that hard work we will send you your fully accredited certificate in the post which will last you 3 years! Well done you!
Full title of qualification is ITC Outdoor First Aid at SQCF Level 5 which will meet with the requirements of National Governing Body instructor awards.
