The qualification includes practical elements undertaken in an outdoors environment.

Candidates need to be capable of performing first aid skills in an outdoor environment.


This qualification is aimed at those over 16 who are able to undertake the responsibilities associated with being an emergency first aider. Those under 16 may undertake the qualification, however they should not be relied upon by employers to be a responsible first aider.
