This two-day course is a refresher for those people who have previously attended a full 4 day Health & Safety at Work course. Successful completion of this course revalidates your HSE status for 3 years.
The course syllabus covers the practical application of first aid with a particular emphasis on first aid in an outdoor environment. It is particularly suitable for leaders of groups such as Teachers or Youth Leaders who are likely to find themselves in outdoor or remote locations.
The practical nature of the course allows plenty of time to practice hands on and thereby develop a greater level of confidence in skills newly learnt.
We place a strong emphasis on a realistic approach to first aid.
There is an element of assessment within the course in order to gain a certificate to display competence at the required level and to revalidate your full HSE First Aid at Work Qualification.
The course cost includes all instruction, accommodation and course materials.
