The Surviving Adventure™ course has been designed to give individuals with little or no medical experience, the confidence and understanding to manage an emergency medical situation when travelling off the beaten track or in a remote environment. The course runs over two days and aims to give an understanding of how to react to and manage a medical emergency. It is ideally suited to individuals or groups undertaking independent travel to remote locations, adventure motorcycling or an adventure race.
Surviving Adventure is high energy and very ‘hands on’ and, once the practicalities and initial lectures are complete, the course progresses to a series of fully realistic exercises. These are designed to give first-hand experience of what an emergency situation feels like, and how to manage one from start to finish. Key to the whole course is the fact that each and every lecture and scenario is presented by a medic, mountaineer or former Special Forces member who has encountered such a scenario first hand.
This course provides the HSE Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate and provides sixteen hours of medical training relating to outdoors and adventurous activities. As such, it provides the first aid training requirements of UK National Governing Bodies such as MLTB, SPA, BCU, BOF, Mountain Bike Leader & DOE.
