Who is this for?

The Forest School First Aid regulated qualification is currently unique to Qualifications Network. It is aimed at forest school leaders who may currently need to undertake up to 3 first aid qualifications to meet requirements. This qualification ensures they can meet those same requirements simply by completing one qualification; therefore on successful completion of this qualification learners may opt to also be certificated fo the following:


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.

Due to the language of the assessment, it is recommended that learners have sufficient command of the English language in order to understand the assessment and to undertake the recommended assessment methods.

Attendees will be required to demonstrate First Aid procedures as they would in a real work environment. This includes providing CPR to a casualty who is on the floor, therefore be physically capable of doing so.
