The first aid training does require full and active participation and you will be expected to manage simulated first aid incidents and act as a simulated casualty for other participants on the course. You should ideally wear loose and comfortable clothing as you will be lying on the floor and being “rolled-over”. On the afternoon of the second day you will practise your skills in an outdoor environment. You will need to bring warm clothing, waterproofs (not your best ones), boots, gloves and a hat i.e. you should be dressed as if you were going out in the mountains on a cold, wet, windy day. We will go outside, whatever the weather!

 Food and drink. Hot drinks will be provided. The Visitor Centre café will be open for hot and cold meals through the day for additional refreshments

Mobile signal. Coverage isn’t perfect at the Visitor Centre. Some networks work and others don’t.
