16 Hour Outdoor First Aid – Blended Learning

From £69.99

New for Autumn 2023 – the blended learning version of our brilliant 16 hour outdoor first aid course; part online, part face-to-face! Our 16 hour outdoor first aid (blended learning) course has around 8+ hours of online pre-learning for you to undertake before attending the face-to-face day in the classroom.

The blended learning 16 hour outdoor first aid course provides the knowledge and skills for first aiders in outdoor environments looking after adults (18+ years) where help is up to 2 hours away. It’s ideal for anyone spending time in the outdoors or wilderness environments through recreational, voluntary or work related activities.


Forest School Leaders; We’d strongly recommend that you consider booking onto our dedicated 3-day Forest School First Aid course that Chris developed hand-in-hand with our Ofqual Regulated Awarding Organisation.

Alternatively, if time is tight, you may prefer our 2-day blended learning forest school first aid course. You’ll learn the same as on the 3-day course and be tested just as stringently, with part of the course undertaken at your leisure beforehand.

In both cases, these dedicated courses allow us to better simulate and assess your training in outdoor scenarios when working with infants (0-1 years old) and children (1-18 years old).
