Level 1 – Explorer Medicine Wilderness First Aid Course

This is a 1 day (8 hours) course designed for people who would like the reassurance of having the essential first aid skills to deal with a life-threatening situation and provide emergency first aid for some of the more common injuries that occur in the outdoors. The course is suitable for those working towards a Level 3 Certificate in Basic Expedition Leadership, D of E supervisors, Field Study Teachers or those who enjoy being in the outdoors. The course gives individuals a thorough grounding in remote wilderness medicine and exceeds the recommendations for the HSE approved Emergency First Aid at Work qualification. We will also pass on our experience of administering first aid in a remote environment and the practicalities involved when it is appropriate. The course has a practical hands-on approach.
