REC Level 2 Emergency First Aid course

Saturday, 8th February 2020 at 9am - 5pm Sunday, 9th February

Location: Dinorwic Mill Cottage, Brynrefail, Snowdonia

This event is in the past.

With the aim of improving the level of first aid skills amongst our members so we can look after each other when we are out climbing, walking, cycling; we are very pleased to be able to offer the 'REC Level 2 Emergency First Aid' course over the weekend of the 8th/9th February at our own club hut.

The course will be delivered by Helen and Steve Howe of Snowdonia First Aid, based in Llanberis. They ran the same course for us in 2015 and it was very good, particularly as Helen and Steve have both got many years experience in Mountain Rescue so they can bring a practical mountaineering perspective to the course. 

The course is aimed at any Outdoor professional or enthusiast and focuses on what first aid to do in an emergency where quick help is not an option. There are 12 places available and the cost is only £80 per person for the whole weekend, including accommodation at our club hut, and plenty of tea/coffee throughout the course (Friday and Saturday evenings). We'll also share a group meal on the Saturday night and if last time is anything to go by a few drinks too!

This is a very competitive rate which the club has been able to secure for this course and we expect the places to go quickly. So we recommend booking straight away if you would like to come. You can pay with your Paypal account, or just using a debit/credit card (no requirement to create a Paypal account if you don't want to). Just click on the 'Buy Tickets' button above to book your place.

As well as providing a great set of skills for club members to help each other (or others) this course also covers the requirements of all the National Governing Body Award schemes such as Mountain Leader (ML), Mountain Instructor Award (MIA), Mountain Instructor Certificate (MIC), Single Pitch Award (SPA), British Canoe Union, Mountain Biking etc.
