2 Day (16hr) Outdoor First Aid Course - 12th and 13th June 2019

A great couple of days on our 2 day Outdoor First Aid course. All the participants were keen to get involved and all enjoyed learning through our practical based scenarios.

Great wild conditions to highlight how important emergency shelters and blizzard blankets are in the mountains regardless of what injuries you are treating!

Wind Farm Emergency Training

We have been providing Emergency First aid training and consultancy on Emergency Procedures for various Renewable Energy site over the last couple years. With so many wind farms being constructed and run in remote locations it would take emergency services an extended period to reach these sites. It’s therefore important that these sites have a way of responding to incidents and provide care to employees until help arrives. We were grateful to be able to help Bam and Siemens with Emergency First Aid Training in particular looking at the types of equipment and techniques to treat injured employees in a winter environment in the Scottish Mountains.

During the two one days sessions we looked at different types of vacuum splints, emergency shelters and stretchers, the practical sessions allowed employees to train and practice treating casualties in the setting where they work.

Here’s what some of the trainees had to say about the sessions:

‘Course structure was ideal starting with basics and leading to outside practicals.’

‘Course content was excellent, particularly useful to try new kit for real.’

‘Relevance of course was ideal coming into winter.’

Iain headed up to DMH Blacksmiths this morning to provide a bespoke 1 day First Aid Course for some of their team. Bit of a change of scene from our usual outdoor stuff but with our background in the oil and gas industry we were equally at home! Thanks to DMH for asking us to be involved and for the awesome

We had a great couple of days providing a 2 day Outdoor First Aid course at CairnGorm Mountain last week, it always helps when the weather is stunning! Some really positive comments about our purely practical based course, not a power point in sight! This means that our instructors have to have a great knowledge of what they are teaching, being able to draw on a huge bank of real situations that we have dealt from Ski Patrolling, in Mountain Rescue and our event medical cover. This method of delivering our courses requires a lower ratio of students to instructors, typically 6:1, so the students get even more from the 2 days.
