ITC First Aid Courses with VIXON Climbing
We don’t like to think of when things go wrong, but sometimes they do! A colleague suddenly collapses, your friend has an allergic reaction to a wasp sting, you trip and fall badly or you find someone who has stopped breathing! We can blissfully hope that we pass through life without ever having to face these situations – Reality is a little different though and you can either dither and panic or you can have the knowledge and techniques to actually help.
The ITC First Aid courses are designed to help you to know what to do if things do go wrong, at home, in the office, on the water or even out in the mountains!
Which Course is Right for You?
The ITC Emergency First Aid at Work – One Day (6hrs)
The Emergency First Aid at Work course is a one day (6hr) course that’s ideal for people who work in an urban environment when professional help is likely to be nearby e.g an office, workshop or factory. It gives you skills and techniques so that you can provide emergency first aid to help someone until the professionals can take over. This qualification also satisfies the HSE obligations for employers for small, low risk work places. So it’s a useful qualification for your CV as well as giving you the key basic first aid skills that you may need in an everyday context. Find out more…
The ITC Certificate in Outdoor First Aid – Two Day (16hrs)
The Outdoor First Aid course is a two day (16hr) course designed for people who spend time in the outdoors professionally and recreationally. This course focuses on how to deal with incidents when professional help may not be close at hand. It’s highly relevant for people who enjoy adventure sports generally and it’s also the qualification that outdoor instructors need to validate their NGB qualifications. Find out more…
How will you be Trained and Assessed?
VIXON trainers are highly qualified Outdoor Practitioners with extensive knowledge of working with people in the outdoor environment.

The ITC First Aid course format provides a systematic approach that develops your skills progressively. You have ample opportunity to practice and you will be provided with tools to help you to remember what to do and when! Your assessment is ongoing throughout the course so that you have the chance to refine your skills as needed.
