For Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award expedition leaders, School Field trip leaders & anyone adventuring in remote, alpine or wilderness areas.

Our Outdoor First Aid course is a 16 hour remote first aid course ideal for Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award leaders, school field trip leaders and teachers who are working with groups away from school, as well as outdoor enthusiasts.

This two day Outdoor First Aid course is delivered in English by the Alpines Rettungswesen e.V. giving you recognised certification for First Aid in Remote Locations.

The course is based in Lenggries in the Bavarian Pre-Alps, with a mix of indoor theory and outdoor activity for the practical development of skills involving complex incident scenarios. The more you practice, the better you are prepared for an emergency situation and can deliver calmer, purposeful and appropriate first aid.
