Course Two

Advanced First Aid: 2 Day

Proposed date: 5/6 Feb 2022 – Tweed Valley Venue

Taking things up to the next level, if you are working far from help
this is the course for you. We have worked with ITC to design a course
that will challenge and stretch those of you who have done the outdoor
course for years. Working from the same foundations we hold so dear at
FAB – Using vital signs assessment to determine “Big or little sick”
and doing a very good primary survey we will develop skills in
monitoring and recognising the onset of medical conditions,
deteriorating casualties and subsequent management of these. This
course will incorporate the mandatory outdoor first aid so you will be
getting the right qualification but in a more dynamic and challenging

Course 4: Thrive Academy

Practitioner seminar: this session will take around 90 mins and is flexible in terms of delivery – contact us for more details.




“I want to have dialogue with my learners around values, mindsets, resilience, wellbeing and thriving, but finding the right words can be tricky!”

This course is built on the experiences our team have gained in years of working in the outdoors and within schools to help folks make sense of adventure and challenge, bringing it into their lives beyond the event and learning how to put their personaal values into action…  Thriving, the ability to learn from setbacks and develop strategies that support personal well being, to become a well “human” being, is not the golden egg we think it is.

Using a systematic approach, like the ABC’s of first aid, this course will explore how we can help learners to shape their lives and make sense of this ever changing world we live in, not just surviving but thriving.

This seminar will give folks the chance to use the toolkit and discuss the elements in detail, learn about the research that underpins each element and get the chance to practice.

As with all FAB courses our aim to to ensure you are Advanced at the basics, you feel capable and confident with the material and you have a pathway to develop further skills, come along and give it a go!

Lead by Jen Isherwood this seminar will be available in a flexible format, online or face to face, in a dedicated workplace or via open courses… 


Course Six

ITC First Aid at Work

This qualification is designed to provide you, as a first aider, with life saving skills but differs form the Emergency First Aid at Work course in its increased content and focus. This course is designed to give you the knowledge to enable you to manage a casualty and/or life threatening incidents or where the the First Aider may have to manage illness, injury, poisoning or burns. A work place risk assessment will determine whether as an employer you need this more comprehensive course. Topics include roles and responsibilities of a first aider, how to deal with a collapsed casualty (and whether they are breathing effectively or not), choking, bleeding, shock, seizures and minor workplace incidents as well as first aid kit suggestions. Managing major illnesses, common and serious workplace injuries, poisoning, anaphylactic shock, burns and eye injury are also included. The nitty gritty there is a minimum 18 hour instructor contact time with a 1:12 instructor ratio. The certificate is valid for 3 years although the HSE do recommend a 3 hour refresher on an annual basis (we can deliver that too, just enquire!). This course is often delivered over 3 days. Assessment by 3 multiple choice questionnaires and ongoing observation throughout the course.

Other Standard Courses Include

First Aid for Sport, Exercise and Fitness (this is ideal for Young Coaches)

Basic Life Support and the Use of an Automated External Defibrillator

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and the Use of an Automated External Defibrillator
