The ITC Outdoor First Aid course is one of the most respected first aid courses, suitable for anyone either working or playing in the outdoors. Suitable for those needing a first aid course to maintain their NGB awards and anyone seeking a more in depth knowledge of how to treat a wide range of medical emergencies in more remote locations where help could be several hours in coming. Your instructor on this course is a former GP with years of outdoor experience, and there will be plenty of time for hands-on practice.
