You'll learn about doing basic first aid in remote locations for longer periods of time. As well as receiving a refresher you will be pushed harder during scenarios to make your casualties more comfortable and keep them alive. We will examine some extra pieces of kit but this is not the key aim of this course. This course covers the requirements for HSE First Aid at Work.
