The two day 16 hour Forest School First Aid course is an outdoor first aid course designed for dealing with children from 1 year of age upwards and includes their potential illnesses and injuries of young children as well as those of adult helpers. The course content is primarily based in the outdoors and recreates emergency scenarios to test your knowledge of responding to an incident where help is not immediately available. This course meets the requirements of OFSTED for practitioners of Forest Schools.
The course is designed for Forest School leaders and practitioners.
What you will learn
The content is similar to our Remote Outdoor First Aid course but with an emphasis on both adults and children:
Management of an unconscious casualty
Head, chest and internal injury
Spinal recovery position
Acute mountain sickness
Management of fractures
Common medical emergencies
If your employer requires you to have a specific Paediatric First Aid Certificate we can run a standard 12-hour Paediatric First Aid course and add a further 4 hours of content covering outdoor injury and illness. This makes the course 16 hours in total and covers the requirements of most Forest School Practitioners. Please specify if you need this option when sending us a booking enquiry.
