First Aid Response Training

Course overview

This practical course allows you to access the skills and expertise we have acquired from decades of operational experience in UK Special Forces, specialist medical units and close protection medical work. Our course exceeds industry requirements and will introduce additional elements dependent on course/student requirements. These can include advanced trauma to chest and abdominal, head and extremity (including tourniquets and haemorrhage) injuries.

This is a four day course, held at Blue Mountain’s dedicated training facility in South Wales. Our facility includes a modern, fully equipped training room with comprehensive training equipment and dedicated ‘break out’ areas; on-site admin support and ample car parking.
