ITC Advanced First Aid (24 HRS)

This ITC Advanced First Aid course is a four day course and is used by those who need to go beyond standard level First Aid, who may have access to more advanced medical equipment and resources. Typical learners include those who work offshore in the oil and gas or wind industries, security operatives, industrial first aiders and is useful for anyone who needs to be able to look after casualties for extended periods of time, in potentially challenging conditions.
