These 1 day (6 hour) courses may be required by employers as part of meeting their requirements under their first aid risk assessment or schools for educational visit leaders (depending on their guidelines).

The aims of the course are to enable you to recognise when someone has a medical emergency and be able to immediately give the appropriate assistance at first aid level in an urban setting.

Topics covered will include

  • Assessments of situation and casualty
  • Airway, breathing and circulation assessments, including emergency resuscitation
  • Safe airway position
  • Dealing with choking
  • Treatment of severe bleeding and shock




Courses are accredited by Immediate Temporary Care First Aid Ltd (ITC) who are regulated by Ofqual and the SQA.


We currently have no open courses planned but offer bespoke courses to groups of 4 or more people, either here at Thornbridge Outdoors or at a venue of your choice.
