The 3-day FAW+F (First Aid at Work + Forestry) course is designed for outdoor professionals working in high-risk environments and covers a broader range of first aid techniques, including advanced skills for specific emergencies. It’s suitable for those whose roles require a comprehensive, 16-hour first aid course. The 1-day EFAW+F (Emergency First Aid at Work + Forestry) course, on the other hand, is tailored for outdoor enthusiasts or professionals in lower-risk settings, focusing on fundamental first aid skills. Both courses include the ‘+F’ element, which adds an outdoor-specific dimension to the training.

No prior first aid experience is required, making the courses suitable for both beginners and those looking to refresh their skills.
