Mountaineering Scotland runs two-day First Aid courses for members, specially targeted at hill walkers and climbers. The course is recognised by Mountain Training Scotland (MTS) as appropriate for its Mountain Leader (ML) awards. The courses are run by Outwardly Mobile First Aid, using a variety of instructors who all have many years practical experience in dealing with First Aid in remote situations.
Entry level course, suitable for people new to hill walking or those who are returning to the hills after a break. The course involves practical outdoor sessions.
Our first aid course is aimed at equipping participants with the knowledge and practical skills to deal with an unexpected emergency in the great outdoors. Aspects covered will include casualty assessment, environmental issues, trauma, medical conditions, how to stabilise a situation whilst waiting for professional help to arrive and the technique of CPR.

"First Aid at Work now assumes the early arrival of an ambulance/paramedic which will not be the case on the hills. Thus this course is an essential for those accessing the hills."
"The instructor's experience and knowledge was amazing, which made the course really interesting
