Professional development through wilderness first aid

Aim

An Endeavour corporate leadership course will develop personal and professional skills, explore human factors within teams and give delegates a recognised 3 year certificate in Wilderness First Aid.

What we offer:

“You are in a remote area of the UK. You find a casualty fallen from a steep slope. He is unconscious with a large wound in his left leg. You need to take control of the situation, assess the casualty, give appropriate first aid, call for help giving all relevant information, co-ordinate your team to transfer the casualty to the helicopter access site.”

This four-day course will equip your team with the skills to confidently carry out the above scenario.

Through acquiring knowledge and skills in advanced first aid, we will explore how leadership style, human factors and communication affect the successful outcome of challenging situations.

Using Endeavours’ immersive, scenario based learning participants will enhance professional and personal skills that are transferrable to their place of work.

Gaining a 3 year certificate in Wilderness first aid not only save lives; it provides the perfect environment to explore team dynamics and approach complex or stressful tasks with calm and confidence.
