Comment posted on UKC (Tues 15th Nov 2011) by a student from one of my YFA courses: ‘I did this course (2-day Rec Emergency First Aid) with Rocio Last month and it was a very good course and great value for money. Lots of discussion on Real life situations and 'making do' with equipment you already have in your bag, making it an Ideal course for working in the outdoors. I Highly recommend it,’ Matt
Description: On the first day we cover remote first aid protocol, head injuries, severe bleeding, hypothermia, CPR and the use of AEDs; second day on we'll look at breaks, sprains and strains, dealing with multiple casualties (triage), common illnesses, etc. All courses are practical in nature so we'll be going outside and dealing with first aid scenarios. We only look at using things that you would carry with you, so we improvise with the equipment we've got. About me: I’m an active climber and mountaineer. I teach a no-nonsense approach to first aid on the hills, emphasising on common sense solutions with the little kit you have with you.

Further dates in 2012: December Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd 2012.
The rest of the year I’m busy climbing, instructing or guiding so I only aim to deliver first aid courses in the Autumn.
