To be a working, outdoor professional you’ll need an outdoor first aid and safeguarding qualification. The course includes a comprehensive, two-day ITC Level 3 Award in Outdoor First Aid and a UK Coaching Safeguarding and Protecting Children Course.

You’ll also complete a Food Hygiene Level 2 certificate which will be useful in most residential outdoor centres and for leading bushcraft sessions.

These essential extras will give employers the confidence to offer you longer contracts with immediate starts.
