This is a 2 day (16 hours) course designed for clients who operate in an outdoor environment. It is the course that Instructors need to validate their NGB Awards and so is appropriate to CWA; SPA; ML; MIA; MIC; BMG; CIC; BCU; MBL; BOF; RYA; BASI qualification holders. Teachers running outdoor trips, MIDAS Minibus drivers, DofE co-ordinators, Scout leaders, Sports Coaches etc should hold this First Aid Award.

Our First Aid courses lead to qualifications which are nationally recognised and regulated by either the English Qualifications Framework RQF or the Scottish Qualifications Authority SQA.

The RQF Level 3 course is recognised by the Institute for Outdoor Learning.

This course is practical in nature and learners are expected to take a full and active part including kneeling, rolling, lying on the ground and having physical contact with other course members.

If you think you may have a condition, which may pose a problem or may prevent you from taking a full and active part in the course, we may be able to make a reasonable adjustment, please contact us in this case.

Our instructor's deliver dynamic courses that utilise their vast experience of delivering Outdoor Activities to adults and young people. This makes our training more applicable and helps students gain vital life-saving skills and knowledge. As a result they will be able to deal confidently and competently with a wide range of situations that could arise in the outdoors.


£135 per delegate - min group size of 4.


This is a popular First Aid training course, which we deliver at our Newcastle upon Tyne base, NE12 9SS.

We will be working outdoors for much of this course so please come dressed appropriately for the season.

If you require details regarding an 'on site' training course, please contact us, we will be happy to help you arrange this.

I took part in a 2 day Outdoor First Aid course with ATNE in November 2017. This was my 4th first aid course but the first time I had gone with ATNE, and they are a breath of fresh air. They have the ability to turn a mundane topic into something exciting and fun. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found the stories and anecdotes very useful in helping me remember the course content. Jon and Caroline both made me feel welcome and created a positive learning environment for the whole class. I would highly recommend them for the first aid course but have no doubt that the same level of professional competency is instilled in all their courses.
