First Aid for Awards & Schemes

First Aid For Awards And Schemes

First Aid is a requirement for Mountain Training Awards and Schemes.

All awards now require a current and relevant 16 hour First Aid course at the time of assessment, with the exception of the Climbing Wall Instructor and Climbing Wall Development Instructor, where an 8-hour course will meet requirements.

The course should be at least 16 hours long, be face-to-face - not online, include an element of assessment and cover remote care. 

If you are unsure if your course meets these requirements, please contact our Training Officer Jane Carney for confirmation.
