Outdoor First Aid
Our ITC Outdoor First Aid courses validate your ML, CWA, SPA, MIA, MIC, BCU, RYA, BOF, Cycle and Mountain Bike Instructor, BASI, Ski and Snowboard Leader, Cave and Mine Leader qualifications or any other coaching or instructing qualifications that require a First Aid certificate. It is the course of choice for most outdoor practitioners.

The course is also suitable for anyone working or playing in the outdoors, such as walkers, climbers, cyclists, paddlers, golfers, anglers, school party leaders, Scout Leaders, D of E trainers and participants, forestry, agriculture and construction workers, etc.

The course is designed so that participants follow systematic, straightforward training programmes. First Aid is a practical subject and practical, hands-on training techniques are the hallmark of our courses. Candidates manage simulated incidents on the training courses, making real decisions and feeling real emotions.
