Outdoor First Aid courses for instructors, hillwalkers, paddlers, bushcrafters and everybody else
Original Outdoors have teamed up with Blackhill Medical Training to provide unique medical training courses suitable for anybody who works or plays in the outdoors. The courses are split into ‘Bushcraft Environment’ and ‘Mountain Environment’ and cover different subjects appropriate to the two environments. They are designed to give you life saving skills via scenario-based teaching and real, ‘hands-on’ methods.
Our basic courses include at least 16-hours of outdoor-specific instruction time and have an assessment at the end – making them suitable for NGB award schemes such as Mountain Leader, Single Pitch Award or BCU awards. They are also compliant with HSE requirements for EFAW or FAAW (please see course page for more information)
As with all of our courses, we try to limit any classroom time to a minimum, and train in the forests and fields amongst nature.
16-hr First Aid course in North Wales
The mountain first aid courses run each year by Blackhill Medical Training on behalf of Original Outdoors offer expert tuition in a realistic learning environment. Subjects are taught outdoors as much as possible in a variety of terrain and locations around our training sites in Dorset and North Wales.
Most outdoor first aid courses are very generic and don’t cover specific activities. The practical mountain first aid courses run by Blackhill Medical Training on behalf of Original Outdoors are different. They use realistic scenarios and expert tuition from wilderness first aid practitioners who are experienced in the mountain environments.
