2 Day (16hr) Outdoor First Aid

We provide various forms of Medical and First Aid training, from 2 day Outdoor Emergency First Aid to bespoke training for groups, expeditions and rescue teams.

All of our training team are highly experienced in providing First Aid in the outdoors as members of the Cairngorm Ski Patrol. This brings a wealth of experience to our courses.

Avium believe in the importance of active learning, and we feel that participants learn best with a 'hands-on' approach. As a result, our courses are taught in practical scenario-based situations, and relaxed open discussions within each group. We believe this approach empowers participants to utilise their skills, in real life situations, with confidence. 

Our team are happy to discuss any current knowledge and skills enabling everyone to get the most out of our courses.
