Wales Outdoors will be co-delivering highly subsidised 2 Day Mountain Leader First Aid Course for Adventure Activity South Wales members that is compliant with the Mountain Leader Award and will cover all of the basics of first aid and then some, specifically remote area care and accidents and injuries specific to the great outdoors.
The event is ticketed and limited to eight participants so we recommend that you RSVP HERE asap!
This is what it says on the event page:
'FIRST AID TRAINING - So, those wishing to lead walks over 2000ft ought to have a two day mountain leader first aid qualification. Also, those walking the hills independently ought to be first aid trained too - you never know when a slip or fall could lead to an injury.
I have negotiated a great rate with a local trainer and can subsidise the course a little too. The cost will be £85pp inclusive of manual and face shield supplied by the trainer and a first aid kit that I will supply. The qualification is valid for three years. This will be a course delivered in the Brecon Beacons. Average costs for this course are £165 so with the kit issued this is well under half price. Who's in?
Places are limited to eight trainees although if there is a good deal of interest this can be increased and another trainer will be brought in.'
