Our Awarding Organisation ‘ITC First’ has a well established relationship with Andy Forsyth and ‘Archimedes Training’ who have designed and developed this Forest Schools First Aid course. The course content and context is totally integrated with the Forest School ethos and rationale.
This qualification is a must for all Level 3 Practitioners and those supporting Level 3 Practitioners.
Assessment is continuous and certification is dependent on successful continuous assessment, there is no final examination. Those who complete the course and are deemed to have reached the required standard are awarded a certificate that is valid for three years.

No previous first aid experience is required to attend this course.
