This course uses the Emergency First Aid at Work Qualification with extra time for the +F element for forestry workers.
All ITC awarded 8-hour and 16-hour courses are delivered from the same manual. The assessments for Forest School First Aid, Outdoor First Aid, Outdoor First Aid Emergency Action and Emergency First Aid at Work +F are very similar, with courses being assessed in the same way. When attending one of these courses, it may run alongside another course – however, you will only be awarded the qualification for the course which you enrolled for. Should you require a second award or dual award, it is possible to be assessed for this at the same time. For more information, or to find out about any additional fees which may apply, please contact us.
