Ramblers First Aid Courses

We organise regular first aid courses through St John Ambulance, with the aim that if anyone is injured or taken ill on one of our walks, there will be someone there who can help until the emergency services arrive.  Details of forthcoming courses can be found below.

The half-day First Aid for Ramblers course will cover the basics, and the scenarios that you’re most likely to face on a group walk.  Whether you are faced with cuts and grazes, broken bones, or something more serious – this course will give you the tools and confidence you need to react and manage the situation until help arrives.

All volunteers will benefit from attending, but particularly walk leaders, backmarkers, and anyone willing to volunteer as the nominated ‘first aider’ on a group walk.  No prior knowledge or experience is necessary.

The training is FREE for Ramblers volunteers, thanks to support from the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery
