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 Four

Thrive Academy: The essentials

Adventure is a great backdrop for exploring resilience, we do it all the time when we bike, swim, climb, run, walk and ski….  

At FAB we have created our own course. Developed by Jen, after years of working in the adventure sector we have designed a course to unpack the subject of resilience.  This course looks at how we can develop personal insights into our strategies for thriving.

The workshop will look at how our mental/physical and emotional fitness are connected to the Place we are in, the purpose we have and the people in our lives.  

Our session will begin by looking at values and choices, exploring the lives of Thrivers we can will find lots of useful top tips to apply in our own situations.


Course duration online is around 90 mins


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
