This is the most basic of our first aid courses and its value within the sector is somewhat limited as in its standard format it is designed for a low risk environment in an urban setting.
It does however cover basic life saving first aid therefore it can be used for administrative and housekeeping staff with the outdoor sector who tend to remain in lower risk, indoor environments. Their skills can then be used to support and supplement the more in depth first aid skills of instructional staff.
Duration: 6+ hours (plus breaks) – usually delivered over 1 day.
Lifespan: 3 years
Requalification: Attendance at another EFAW course.
This is the most comprehensive of our standard workplace first aid courses.
It is possible, with an extended course to combine the First Aid at Work syllabus with the Outdoor First Aid course.
The longer duration allows for a more detailed insight into many of the issues facing first aiders in this environment.
Duration: 18 hours – usually delivered over 3 days. (This does not have to be 3 consecutive days)
Lifespan: 3 years from the last day of the course
If the original qualification is still valid or a requalification course can be completed within one calendar month beyond the original qualification expiry date then it is posible to attend a 12 hour (2 day) First Aid at Work Requalification course.
If the original qualification will have expired by more than one calendar month then you must attend the full 18 hour (3 day) First Aid at Work qualification.
The content of this course is exactly the same as the full 18 hour (3 day) first aid at work qualification but it is covered in a shorter 12 hour (2 day) course.
It is only possible to attend this course if it will be completed no more than one calendar month beyond the expiry of the original qualification.
Please check before booking that the current qualification is of the correct type and validity.
The early versions of this course were originally developed for the outdoor activity sector and as such were designed from the outset to cover outdoor specific first aid.
This is an excellent course which meets the first aid requirements for a number of National Governing Bodies within the outdoor sector including;
- Mountain Training
- British Caving Association
- British Cycling
- British Canoeing
The course can also be delivered in such a way that multiple certification can be achieved to include where necessary:
- Paediatric First Aid – an ideal combination for forest school leaders
- Emergency First Aid at Work
- First Aid at Work Refresher
This is a highly practical course that covers a great deal of topics in 2 days.
Duration: 16 hours – usually delivered over 2 days.
Lifespan: 3 years
Requalification: By attending another 16 hour Outdoor First Aid course.
NPT have a highly qualified and experienced team and therefore the possibilities are endless:
- CPR & AED (Defibrillator)
- Catastrophic Bleeding
- Oxygen Administration
- Anaphylaxis and Adrenaline Auto-Injectors (e.g. Epipen)
We can work with you to design and deliver the precise training that you require.
The HSE suggested course content for annual refresher training includes:
- Acting safely, promptly and effectively in an emergency.
- Dealing with an unconscious casualty
- Administering CPR
- Dealing with bleeding
- Dealing with shock
These subjects can be amended or added to depending on the risks identified in the workplace.
They can also easily be incorporated into site based training exercises.
A robust emergency plan is an important part of professional outdoor activity provision. Workers in these industries will typically either be faced with:
a) A longer wait for the emergency services to arrive on scene
b) Conducting at least some of the casualty evacuation themselves
North Pennines Training can assist with the design and implementation of emergency plans and also conduct training to test (and practice) emergency plans.
Due to the nature of our work we get to play with a lot of kit. We also hear a lot of feedback on our courses about which kit has worked really well and which should be avoided. Based on this knowledge we have selected particular items of kit that we know work well and we can now supply these items to our clients. These include:
- Bespoke AED (defibrillator) kits designed for harsh environments
- Trauma Dressings
- Blizzard Casualty Protection Blankets
- Celox Haemostatic Dressings
