15th - 17th of September. Should be enough time for people to book time off etc.

There is plenty of parking at the site. Accomodation is your choice really. Camping is not essential but we will be running the course in 250+acres of woodland. Plenty of room for tents and hammocks.

Only kit you need to bring is your usual camping kit and spare clothing. All equipment and resources will be provided. This is a self catering course though.

There will be a communal fire in the woods for cooking etc. The teaching will involve plenty of practical examples and lots of student activity into the night.

Well as long as the course doesn't actually start Friday during the day then I'm in. Can I pay a deposit for the moment and settle up nearer the time?

Wayne have you got any details so I can find out if its recognised by Hampshire County Council for DoE.

Cheers and all the best

I'm checking with SWMBO and work dates all bieng equal I am so up for this. I already have FAW certification, could you tell me what certification (if any) this will add and who is authorising the certification. Not that it affects me but it will help me convince others that I need the time free.

The certification centre for this course will be Lifesigns Group. The course exceeds the appointed person certificate that will be issued. However as the focus is on real situations faced in remote situations it is useful to those with a FAW cert. This course is a far more than make a call and wait for the paramedics.

I feel its a must for anyone travelling or spending time in more inaccessable areas. AlthoughI I would say that its my course.

Matt i am pretty certain it is recognised by DoE as I will check tomorrow.

If youre talking about tailoring the course could you get into detail on improvised splints & fracture immobilasion. Ive had experience if these and it wasnt nice. I think its an essential for wilderness/ inaccessable first aid to do well and effectively.
