    What you will learn:

    The course aims to teach or refresh your knowledge of basic first aid, giving you confidence to deal with first aid emergencies when out climbing, kayaking or other outdoor pursuits.


    The Emergency first aid course is certified for three years and is an entry point for the REC scheme (for those wanting advanced first aid courses). It is an approved course for RYA, BCU, MLTB.
