For those of you who are unaware, Woodlore has now been running a series of First Aid courses for over four years. Nowadays, a quick search online will reveal dozens, if not hundreds, of first aid training providers. But what makes a Woodlore First Aid course so special is that we gear them specifically for those of you who spend time in the outdoors. What’s more, each course revolves around highly realistic scenarios, aimed to really put your learning to the test.
So if you work in the outdoors, go camping alone or with friends, or are planning a more serious expedition, then the Wilderness Emergency Medic (WEM) range of courses that Woodlore run will provide you with first aid training that could prove vital in the field.
This year’s Level 2 course took place at the end of June and, with the help of Woodlore’s ever-inventive team, is now firmly in the running as one of our most gruesome courses yet! The aim of this method of teaching is to prepare our students for the worst; understanding first aid is one thing, but being able to apply that knowledge at times of high pressure is essential. A word of warning though – stop here if you’re squeamish…
This year’s WEM2 course went off with a bang in more ways than one. The reality of the scenarios offered was stunning and all those who attended benefitted hugely from the challenges presented in this truly thrilling and essential course. Special mentions go out to Jamie Cooke for his fast-paced and in-depth teaching and to Sarah Day for her superb makeup and acting skills!
