ITC Awards in Outdoor First Aid (1-day & 2-day qualifications)
The outdoor or remote environment can mean that the casualty has to be cared for longer than is typical in a more urban setting. All of our ITC Outdoor First Aid courses consider how to manage the situation when the rescue services do not arrive quickly. This course is appropriate if your work or leisure place is remote or rural. The qualification will keep NGB Outdoor awards valid. It is a suitable course for remote industry workers i.e. Forest; Wind installations; Farming and Gamekeepers; Equine sports and Surveying.
