All public courses take place in Manchester or the Peak District, and bespoke courses can be run nationwide at your own club, workplace or venue on request. These outdoor first aid courses are suitable for anyone with an interest in providing emergency First Aid, and are perfect for instructors needing to keep their NGB qualifications valid. Therefore we are delighted, in association with BORDA, to launch our new vehicle first aid course.
It is built around practical vehicle related scenarios eg burns, falls from vehicle and collapse at the wheel. Outdoor first aid for vehicle emergencies is for anyone who uses off-road vehicles or drives off-road professionally or in their leisure time. It is certified by REC and run in association with BORDA so meets the needs of off-roaders, or anyone working in and around vehicles needing an emergency first aid qualification for work or simply for their own peace of mind.

A new study has further illustrated the potential field safety dangers of carbon monoxide in tents, especially with modern, highly waterproof and airtight tents where levels of poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) from the burning stove can build up fast. A small scale study from several Michigan emergency room doctors suggested the type of stove fuel used and the type of tent can make a difference.

We were delighted to recently run a unique outdoor first aid and specialist wilderness medical course on managing altitude illness in Moshi, Tanzania.  Participants were trekking leaders or assistant leaders working for UK holiday company, Explore on Mount Kilimanjaro. This systematic and specialised training course makes the attendees one of the most highly trained and skilled teams of guides working on Kilimanjaro.  The training allows the team to competently respond to and manage common wilderness medical and altitude problems. The first two days covered core outdoor first aid skills culminating in a one hour long ‘major incident’ scenario involving three simulated patients, each of which had with trauma and medical issues to be managed. Participants reported that the training course gave them greater knowledge and built their confidence in dealing with first aid incidents and especitally in managing altitude illness.

In all outdoor first aid and wilderness medical situations, just by slowly and calmly approaching the casualty you get a very clear sense of how bad they are.  That extra minute or two is time not wasted as it provides you with an invaluable sense of the urgency, what you think has happened to the patient and whether it is safe for you to approach.  You arrive at the patient better prepared for what you eventually need to do for them!

It can be a bit of a maze trying to find the right first aid training for you – and more changes to first aid regulations from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)  are expected to come into force on 1 October, subject to ministerial approval. For many of our clients who work in outdoor or remote areas the new guidelines may allow people more freedom to chose an outdoor first aid, or expedition first aid course if this is more relevent to their working environment. You can read the full draft HSE guidance on choosing courses and providers but rest assured that Training Expertise will continue to offer a range of fully certified workplace and outdoor first aid options. If you would like to discuss which course is best for you, then don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Today we are really delighted to share with you the latest news from our sponsored expedition Bhubesi Pride’s Rugby in Africa 2013.
For a country with the least knowledge of rugby of the ten countries in which Bhubesi Pride works, it was a humbling and rewarding experience for all team members to witness clear progression and continue to contribute to the development of the game here. Continuing to strengthen our great working link with the Uganda Rugby Union, daily coaching clinics ran each morning, in the cooler section of the day, together with players from Jinja Nile RFC. We are thrilled to report on even greater coverage this year, with massive media and press partners, all so keen to share Bhubesi Pride’s work in Africa with their enormous, loyal followings.

Blood loss caused by traumatic injury is the 2nd leading cause of death in civilian incidents.
It is a key element in good first aid training courses and is especially important for those working in remote areas or needing to do outdoor first aid. Indirect Pressure – there are certain points on the upper arm and in the groin which allow you to apply pressure to arteries to stop further blood flowing into the limb and therefore lost out of the wound.


Tourniquets – in urban settings these are generally not needed because of the proximity to professional help. Which methods you use will depend on the circumstance BUT the main thing is to act fast and stop any further loss of blood in life-threatening bleeding.

Each participant will be given a first aid booklet and hand outs to keep, and will be sent a first aid certificate after successfully completing the course. For further details or to organise a date for your own course please feel free to contact us. The course meets BSA requirements for wilderness first aid training among all crews participating in national and council high adventure camps.
We use realistic first aid scenarios that are designed to match the situations that you are likely to encounter, whether you are an individual, instructor, activity leader, scout, family, or commercial organisation. Skills learnt on this course will enable you to provide help in a first aid situation be it at an off-roading event, whilst driving yourself, at work or the first aid incidents you could come across on the road or in your day to day life. Since leaving our pre-trip and preparation expedition training week in Ascot the team have spent the past 54 days completely engrossed in Africa’s most unique rugby and community development programme… and we want to share with you their progress so far! Training Expertise were really pleased to provide a range of field safety training to prepare them. Yet there are a number of relatively easy and quick actions the lay person or first aider can do to prevent further blood loss and increase chance of surviving. The Basic First Aid course is designed to introduce a systematic way of first aid for managing casualties. As well as teaching the key techniques listed below, you will spend a lot of time on each course outdoors, putting your skills to the test away from the comfort of the classroom, and seeing how they hold up in a real-world situation. Closed group bookings cost ?840 for a group of twelve people, and you’ll save even more if you are able to provide your own venue. It covers the core life-saving skills to deal with an incident through plenty of hands-on practice including vehicle based and outdoor scenarios.
They worked with three schools, with boys and girls, enthusiastic local staff willing to learn themselves, as well as four hugely passionate player-coaches from Nyalas Rugby Club, who made the journey from the capital everyday, taking advantage of a great community rugby week! Our understanding of their usefulness in a pre-hospital setting is much greater as a result of recent conflicts in the Middle East. Learning is through theoretical and practical sessions intermixed with scenarios based on real situations.
You can expect to find diabetic walkers inconveniently situated between the trees, kayakers stranded on riverbanks, and climbers on rocky outcrops. Studies show that a tourniquet can be applied to a limb for up to 2 hours (and in many cases more!) with minimal damage to the tissue.
