To maintain European Equivalence, our 2 day First Aid Courses at the beginning of every Season are AOFA HSE and OFQUAL endorsed and therefore include indoor core principle work and outdoor situational training.
This is a specialist first aid course, which is relevant to all involved in extreme activities and sports. It teaches how to treat relevant sports injuries and resuscitate sportsmen and women who are knocked unconscious whilst in action.
You will learn the core skills required to deal with life threatening illnesses and injuries. In addition the course covers the initial treatment of common sports injuries including soft tissue, head, neck and spinal injuries, there is also an element of Paediatric Basic Life Support.
We customize the course to specifically fit all the requirements encountered in a Ski Instructor working environment. So apart from core 1st Aid principles, we also include training in Oxygen, Basic drug administration, AED (Defibrillator), Spinal, Fracture and Airway management.
During the second day students apply their training to the environment they work in and are given likely Emergency scenarios the may face in their fields. Finally candidates are to complete an exam on everything they have learnt and practised during second day.
The HSE Emergency First Aid at Work course is run over the first day, with approximately 6 – 7 hrs contact time. Advanced Medical training is run over a second day and has a more hands on approach with likely scenarios set in your particular environment.
- One Day HSE EFAW is valid for three years.
- Additional Advanced training modules on second day are valid for one year.
- Candidates will receive both certificates.
This information will be important for many as they seek First Aid Certificates to work for the Season (and their Employers or Associations require these specific elements within a First Aid qualification)
