As well as delivering the key emergency First Aid skills of the EFAW programme, Activity First Aid offers more in-depth understanding of the kinds of injury and medical emergency that are associated with sports and outdoor recreational activities. It addresses the particular challenges of providing First Aid in an outdoor or remote setting, where professional help may be further away. The course is very hands-on and can include practice elements in the outdoors. If you require a higher level of clinical training, please consider our FREC courses.
Attendees who successfully complete the course attain a Level 2 Award in Activity First Aid, a nationally recognised Qualsafe-accredited qualification.
