Forest School First Aid Course
16 Hour Forest School First Aid Course (ITC Certified), delivered by Silver Fox Training Ltd
Why do Forest School First Aid training?
The ‘Forest School First Aid’ course is an adaptation of an outdoor first aid course. The emphasis is on the outdoor element and looks at the issues involved when forest school practitioners are further away from help than they would be in an urban setting (ie looking at evacuation, keeping casualties warm, equipment, emergency action plans etc).
This course is aimed at first aid in the outdoors for treating 1 year old’s and upwards. Candidates may have to do an additional Pediatric course to cover these workplace requirements. (Please note: some people even have to do a ‘First aid at Work’ course as well, as the school has a need for this cover).
We think as Forest school providers, we are making a decision, as an employer would do, having done an assessment of the first aid needs that candidates need to do a specific outdoor first aid course (preferably with a forest school context) whilst they are going through the forest school training.
Once signed off as a forest school practitioner and in three years’ time when their first aid certificate runs out then the candidate/school/organisation can make their own decision.
This course is currently going ahead outside, adhering to Government guidelines and social distance rules. Please see our Covid Protocol document for full details.
