5 days

This advanced outdoor first aid qualification is recognised by New Zealand outdoor education and adventure tourism providers. During the 5-day programme (and subsequent 2-day refresher courses) the theory of medical emergencies and treatment is presented in an interactive manner. Participants then apply this knowledge by attending to realistic emergency scenarios. This hands-on, practical approach prepares participants to manage emergencies when access to medical facilities and equipment is limited.
