Our Outdoor First Aid course at Gartmore House this week proved to be a big success!
Our candidates turned up from all over Scotland to complete the 2 days of training on 3rd and 4th May.
The course was held at Gartmore House in Stirlingshire. What a fantastic venue. A magnificent 18th century country house set in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Scotland. We were given a lovely big room where the candidates could spread out and practice their first aid skills. And then there was the grounds….75 acres of grass and woodland. Perfect for our outdoor scenarios on day 2.
The weather was looking a bit ominous on the first day, however, by day 2 it was dry and the candidates were able to practice what they had learned in the classroom outside in the forest.
The first challenge, was to actually find their casualty! Here at The National School of First Aid Training, we try to make our scenarios and training as realistic as possible, so you will not always get a calm casualty who is kind and helpful! We feel it is best to teach skills based on a ‘real’ situation and in a real situation your casualty may be screaming hysterically, or unconscious and not breathing. It is up to the candidates to find them and identify the necessary first aid that they then mus administer!
Think it’s easy?! Come and have a go and put your skills to the test!
