Qualification Objectives

This qualification indicates an individual can undertake the role of Outdoor First Aider in the more rural and remote areas of the British Isles where professional emergency assistance maybe more than 10 minutes away. The need for an Outdoor First Aider might have been identified by a workplace first aid needs assessment, and can be relied upon by employers to satisfy the due diligence requirements of the HSE for first aid training providers. 

The qualification will benefit all who need to be introduced to emergency first aid action in the outdoors and outdoor first aid incident management. The qualification will also benefit those who require requalification training in Outdoor First Aid. 

Successful completion of the course will result in knowledge and skills that have been identified by the Institute for Outdoor Learning for the safe, effective and prompt treatment of injuries and illness, with the management of incidents in the outdoors. 

It is suitable for workers in rural and remote settings and will maintain the license to practice for those with Outdoor National Governing Body Instructor awards.
