18/11/2021 — 'Forest Schools First Aid ' course by Cambridgeshire County Council

Thanks very much for a detailed and comprehensive first aid course. Enjoyed doing it! The balance of theory to practical was well weighted towards the latter and came away with lots of new ideas for how to be better prepared for an emergency situation with DofE.

A highly interactive course which covered all manner of scenarios that might occur out of reach of regular emergency services. Plenty of opportunity to discuss specific examples and an excellent refresher of first aid techniques. I also enjoyed the range of new products brought and discussed as part of the course. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone running outdoor activities such as DofE.
