ITC accredited Expedition courses have evolved over the years. Each course is uniquely tailored to the client group and builds upon our experience gained over the years. Typically an ITC qualification is delivered either from the Emergency Expedition series or the Advanced Expedition series.
The Emergency series is for those with some First Aid experience and provides 2 days of hands on interactive training covering essential First Aid technique and incident management and then a further day with an environment specific module tailored to the group.
The Advanced series is for those who have completed First Aid qualifications in the past and have been active First Aiders for some time. It develops a more proactive approach to incident management over 2 days and then a further day with an environment specific module. An ethos of becoming advanced at the basics rather than basic at advanced skills is developed. Thus they are First Aid qualifications rather than expedition medic courses.
The courses are aimed at the expedition member who is traveling away from medical help and requires further First Aid insight rather then invasive medical training.
Each course is unique depending upon location of expedition. Trainers are used who have been to your expedition location. Additional bolt on modules designed for the specific group requirements.
Experienced professional trainers with an active professional interest in First Aid training, coming from a variety of working backgrounds understanding the specific needs of various environments. Our trainers are constantly updating their methods and materials keeping abreast of current best practice from around the world. Trainers typically have a professional background in outdoor developmental work or be active practitioner.
The course is normally location specific. The Expedition First Aid certificate will have a valid lifetime of 3 years and will be revalidated by another similar course.
