Our 2 Day, 16 Hour Outdoor First Aid course for Forest School Leaders and Outdoor Woodland Learning Practitioners is specifically designed for the requirements of the sector.

Developed by our Forest Schools expert, this course removes the ‘remote’ aspects of our standard Outdoor First Aid 2 Days course, and instead emphasises care of young people in an outdoor environment.

Forest Schools First Aid

First Aid Requirements for Forest School Leaders

Forest School Level 3 Leaders are required to have a 2 day / 16 Hour first aid certificate that specifically deals with child-specific issues in the outdoor or woodland environment.

Our course satisfies these requirements and includes young child-specific issues such as:

  • Child-specific life signs
  • Child CPR
  • Child Choking
  • Child illness

As standard, this course does not include Paediatric first aid content. It concentrates on nursery age children and older, as well as adult helpers. If you require content specifically dealing with babies or infants in an outdoor environment, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

It includes many practical outdoor incident scenarios, which can be tailored to the environment in which your outdoor learning takes place. That might be the forest, beach, or simply in the playground.
