Listed on these pages, you will find a variety of courses available to individuals and businesses. All are based upon the HSE First Aid at Work syllabus - and, for the more technical 'workplace specific', widely expand upon that.

These 1 or 2 day courses cover the special requirements of persons working in the Forestry, Arboriculture industries and power line inspection / maintenance.
The 1 day course covers the basic skills and is mostly appropriate for persons working in urban and 'easy access' areas, wheras the 2 day course enables a wider syllabus and outdoor casualty care practice to be completed.
These courses have now been running for over 6 years.
First Aid for Forest Schools and young persons
The courses are of 2 days duration, being based upon the long established First Aid for Mountaineers & Instructors -- but expanded and targeted towards the special issues of taking young people into forests and the countryside for education & experiences.
Consideration is therefore made to the difficulties we may encounter in recognising and managing fractures and shocks, and common illnesses etc.
The course also meets the requirements for persons operating on Forestry Commission lands (EFAW+F).
Sessions are both classroom and casualty management outdoors.
