The Forest School First Aid course is a 2-day, 16-hour course aimed at those involved in the
delivery of Forest School sessions. This course is accredited through ITC First and has become the benchmark for first aid training for Forest School practitioners.
The course rationale is focused on the outdoor environment but also structures around the range of activities facilitated within a Forest School session. It prepares practitioners to:
* deal with situations where they may be within minutes of help but also where they are remote; remote being up to 30 minutes away from help.
* to assess and deal with both children and adults
Topics include; roles & responsibilities, dealing with collapse (with and without
breathing), choking, bleeding, shock, major illnesses, torso and limb injuries, environmental effects, heat & cold injuries, using first aid kit, outdoor specific scenarios, outdoor incident
management, answering queries such as when or how to remove boots, helmets and looking after a casualty for some hours.
Our course is structured with plenty of scenarios in outdoor management to enable lots of hands-on experience which will boost your confidence when dealing with the real thing.
