The outdoor environment nearly always means that the casualty has to be looked after for a longer timescale than is typical in a more urban setting.

This qualification has been developed  to meet the requirements of the worker or practitioner in the outdoor environment.  It is suitable for workers in remote locations and will maintain the license to practice for those with Outdoor National Governing Body Instructor Awards.  Course Duration
