First Aid Training Last Minute places 14th/15th July, Eco Centre near Wirksworth

7 07 2015

We are very excited to be running our first Outdoor First Aid course on Tuesday 14th & Wednesday 15th July and were wondering whether you may have staff, volunteers, leaders or other contacts who might benefit from the qualification, as we still have some spaces left.

This two day course is ideal for outdoor leaders, teachers, field scientists, Duke of Edinburgh Award participants and leaders , outdoor enthusiasts and staff working in remote places. It will provide participants with an accredited, recognised certificate valid for 3 years.

The course will take participants through the skills essential for rescue and emergency care in outdoor/ remote situations, including:

  • Safe best practice
  • A systematic approach to incident management in the outdoors
  • Unconsciousness, causes and treatment
  • External bleeding, internal bleeding and shock
  • Resuscitation procedures including choking
  • Awareness of current regulations
  • Injury management outdoors
  • Illness recognition and management
  • Managing thermal (heat, cold) problems
  • Incident management scenarios

The course costs £120 per person which is very good value when you consider many well known national First Aid Training providers charge around £100 for a one day course!

To find out more or to book a place please contact the Derbyshire Eco Centre on 01629 533038 or email

Best regards
