EpicTrails - Outdoor first aid (2 day course) is now full, but you may join the Waiting List.

Organiser's Description

EpicTrails believes that everyone should feel safe when out. As such, we have teamed up with the Bags First Aid (Bags First Aid) to deliver a 2 day outdoor first aid course (both days must be attended). The session will run from 9pm to 4pm on Sunday 10th March and Sunday 17th March 2024 within Milngavie Scout Hall. Also incorporated within the course will be Emergency First Aid at work. 

This course is being run as not for profit by EpicTrails. The course has been largely subsidised by EpicTrails with only a small cost required by participants.

If you need to cancel please get in touch asap. No refunds will be given with less that 7 days until the first day.
