How will you benefit from Life Saving Training?
Our Outdoor First Aid training in the North East and across the UK can be either regulated by Ofqual/SQA or non regulated depending on your requirements. It meets and exceeds the minimum standards set by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and uses our systematic approach to enable our First Aiders to confidently and effectively respond to various medical incidents. Our training is consistent with ERC 2015/ILCOR2015/UK Resuscitation Council Guidelines and meets the The Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh Faculty of Pre-hospital Care (FPHC) Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) guidelines at level B.
Life Saving Training offers a modern, proven alternative to the outdated and ineffective training that litters the world of first aid. We empower learners by placing them at the centre of everything we do. We focus on positive casualty outcomes and provide skills that work in the real world. Our specialised training results in guaranteed increased confidence and a higher retention rate of knowledge and skills. Our Life Saving Training saves lives.
Our Outdoor First Aid courses in Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham and the North East are carefully designed to work in the real world. If you work, play or look after others in the outdoors, Outdoor First Aid is for you. You’ll learn how to deal with Outdoor First Aid scenarios and how to insulate, shelter and monitor the casualty - after all - you could be with a casualty for a long time before help arrives.
You’ll learn how to deal with casualties on uneven ground, in any weather for extended periods of time, using whatever you have available to stabilise the casualty. You’ll learn the different ways to activate the Emergency Services, including Mountain Rescue and how to effectively hand the casualty over to them.
At Life Saving Training we have a range of Outdoor First Aid courses to suit different needs, from 8 hour Emergency Action in the Outdoors, to 16 hour Outdoor First Aid, to Advanced Outdoor First Aid. Require Forest School First Aid? We offer that too! We can also run any of our other First Aid courses such as our 3 Day First Aid at Work course in an outdoor context if required - ideal First Aid training for anyone who works outside.
