Outdoor First Aid Course
We have spent the last two days delivering an ITC Certificate in Outdoor First Aid course for staff and friends of the Pinnacle Climbing Centre in Northampton. The centre has just celebrated one year of opening and is a thriving and popular venue for climbers of all ages and abilities in the East Midlands.
The qualification has been developed with the support of the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and is designed to meet the needs of those working away from immediate assistance in the remote regions of the UK and is used by many who are based abroad and is the course of choice for experienced practitioners who use the outdoors.
The people attending the course also needed and Emergency First Aid at Work certificate and we were able to integrate this award into the two days comparing and contrasting what is different in the urban context when appropriate, giving the first aider a clear understanding of their first aid roles in urban and outdoor settings.
