This course covers subjects not covered on a conventional Ofsted approved Paediatric First Aid, including focus on injuries caused by fire, falls for trees and outdoor play equipment and emphasis on environmental related conditions such as heat exhaustion and stings.

The course content is delivered primarily outdoors and recreates emergency scenarios to test your knowledge of responding to an incident where help is not immediately available. This course meets the requirements of OFSTED for practitioners of Forest Schools.
