Outdoor Pursuits 16 Hour First Aid


Outdoor Pursuits 16 Hour First Aid to meet the requirements laid down by many outdoor pursuits as it covers primary and secondary care and adapted to the outdoor world where the emergency services may be harder to access. We also offer a shorter course if that is all you require or other specific workplace courses.

We offer this course as a classroom or blend course where students complete our Pro First Aid Plus Online course then attend a classroom course to practice the skills that have been learnt online.

All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements.

  • Watersports instructors
  • SCUBA instructors
  • Mountain climbers
  • Outdoor pursuits instructors and students

This course comes with 16.0 hours of CPD, although the time to complete the course online may be less than this.

The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.
