REC LEVEL 2: EMERGENCY OUTDOOR FIRST AID

This is our most popular First Aid course and covers the requirements of all the National Governing Body Award schemes such as Mountain Leader (ML), Mountain Instructor Award (MIA), Mountain Instructor Certificate (MIC), Single Pitch Award (SPA), British Canoe Union, Mountain Biking etc.

The course is aimed at any Outdoor professional or enthusiast and focuses on what first aid to do in an emergency where quick help is not an option.

This course can be tailored for specific needs. An extra day can be added if you require, allowing the first aid course to focus more specifically on mountain or water environments in greater detail.
