Outdoor First Aid

About our Courses

"Definitely the best first aid course I've been on, and I've been on a lot!"

Our range of Outdoor First Aid courses are fully certified by Rescue Emergency Care and are designed and written by Jason over 25 years ago. Over the years we have developed them further still. Typically, our courses are co-delivered by both Jason and Leo (of Getafix) between the two of them that's over 60 years of teaching and coaching outdoor first aid and adventure sports... That's hard to beat!

All our courses are fully compliant, teach appropriate skills, are fully referenced and current.  What we don’t do is teach people ’fancy stuff’ they are simply not allowed to do, just because it appears to be ‘flash’.  Both Jason and Leo have worked, guided and dealt with real incidents in some of the most remote and inhospitable places around. We know for real what it’s like and what skills are actually achievable whilst under pressure in remote environments. 


So, we’ve designed and deliver all our courses with this in mind, we’ll give you some amazing and unique resources which will help you to remember everything by not having to remember much at all! Allowing you to do your very best in the worst of situations.

Keeping it Real

Let’s face it, if you ever need to use these skills for real, you’re going to be under significant pressure and will often not have practised them for a while. Performing well and doing the right thing when something goes wrong is critical. Poor performance not only has an impact on the person you’re looking after, but can also significantly impact your own mental health, never mind your business!
No-one wants that…


That said, we’re not going to baffle you with Greek medical terms and more importantly tell you ‘war stories’ – in fact the complete opposite; we’ll get you to trust your own judgement and develop your confidence to do the right things when its needed. 


Oh, and be prepared to enjoy yourself – which isn’t something you’d normally associate with a first aid course…

"The learning aid provided is probably the most useful bit of kit I will ever carry... they had loads of useful tips and tricks for emergency situations ..."
