Need a outdoor First Aid course NOW!

Outdoor First Aid Fort William

Life happens, we get busy and then you realise you need your 2 day Outdoor First Aid NOW! 

We can help.

Take a deep breath….

In an emergency we do courses 1:1 if we have space in the diary and you can make it to Fort William. We’d rather you came on a ‘open course’, but if we have space we will try to help.

We still focus on qaulity by using a lot of video feedback to give a solid set of skills and getting in extra people for ‘spinal log roles’. The course will be delivered outside under a tarp in our local community woodland. 

Currently we charge £450 per day for a course to your group, plus £15 per person for registration and certification.  For an ‘I need it now’ course we will only charge £149  per day. So a 2 day Outdoor First Aid 1:1 would be £298, a lot less than the £900 we charge for most groups!

You can understand that the ‘need it now’ course is our way to help people rather than a standard part of our businesss model.

How do I choose the right first aid course?
