In the first section, we introduce you to your Activity First Aid course and explain how the course works. You will then be shown some examples of outdoor activity injuries.

In this section, we look at asking permission to help and consent in first aid, how to take vital signs, and activate the Emergency Medical Services (E.M.S). We look at the different ways you can keep yourself safe when dealing with an emergency whether from infections or other dangers. You will learn about mountain and helicopter rescue, as well as multiple casualty incidents in remote areas, and how to conduct an initial assessment and correctly place a casualty in the recovery position following a sports related injury.

This section covers CPR, how to identify when it is needed, and procedures to carry out CPR on both adults and children, including hands only CPR and handing over to a second rescuer. There is information on how to improve your CPR compressions and breaths and how to deal with drowning, including near and secondary drowning. We introduce you to the AED, Automated External Defribulator, and how it can help a patient in cardiac arrest.

In this section, we cover how to recognise and deal with choking in both adults and children.

In this section, we look at the different types of bleeding, including serious bleeds, how to treat excessive blood loss, and bleeding control. Following on from bleeding we cover embedded objects, nose bleeds, minor and other injuries, as well as the use of plasters and the healing process after an injury.

We cover a number of injuries in this section and how to recognise and treat them. This includes strains, sprains, fractures and dislocations, and how to use splints and kinesiology tape. We look at the different types of head injury and concussion, as well as spinal injuries and the spinal recovery position. We then look at eye injuries, specifically embedded objects in the eye, before we move on to burns. When we learn about burns we look at the different kits and dressings available as well as the use of cling film to treat a burn in an emergency. Heat and Cold Emergencies, including frostbite and frostnip, are covered before moving on the shock and fainting. We look at common sporting injuries, such as, cramps and blisters, and more serious injuries to the chest and abdomen, as well as injuries that are more likely to occur in an outdoor setting, like stings and snake bite.

This section covers illnesses, starting with the signs and symptoms of different illnesses, allergies, medications, and pre-existing conditions a casualty may have. You will learn how to recognise a stroke, allergic reactions, and anaphylaxis and the appropriate action to take. Diabetes and asthma can be common problems and we will look at how they may become a medical emergency and why early treatment is important, including the use of asthma inhalers, spacers, and Accuhaler. Not all seizures are epileptic but it is important to understand epilepsy and how to recognise and deal with a seizure. Although not necessarily illnesses we cover electrical injuries, hyperventilation, and Lyme Disease in this section so you have full knowledge and understanding of the situations you may encounter that require first aid assistance.

To finish your training, this section covers the use of medications in first aid and a brief summary before you take your final test.
