About this Event

***please note - at least £25 per person will be donated to South Snowdonia Search and Rescue Team - this course does not run on a profit basis***

This 5 day course, delivered by Real First Aid is a highly practical, scenario based course affords candidates the opportunity to practice skills and contextualise theory in realistic situations. Adam's pledge is zero powerpoint, and you can be assured of this! See what this means in the video beneath.

You will also receive ongoing information and guidance after the course finishes.

This QNUK Level 3 Award in First Responder is a 5 Day program focusing on additional interventions and management of serious incidents with the expectation of longer term management of the casualty at the scene. It is expected that candidates will have previously attended some First Aid training.

The course is a mix of taught theory, practical demonstration, skill stations and realistic scenarios.

Below is a guide as to what could be covered, however, it is tailored content, delivery style and contextual setting to our needs in outdoor an remote environments.

This 5 day course includes a full day of practical scenarios - not lectures but realistic casualty simulation in challenging situations.

Real First Aid, and no-mad set our standards on the best possible, not the bare minimum; The Awarding Organisation's guidance is that the course should comprise of a minimum of 24 hours delivery time. A four day course would be 6 hours per day, not including breaks or assessments.

Why then is this 5 days for the price of 4?

The additional time ensures that you have time with 'hands on kit'. First Aid is a practical skill. You can sit through a presentation but it is time engaged in practical activities which consolidates the learning.

Assessment

This course is assessed by Multiple Choice Question exam and Observation of practical skills.
