R.A.W. First Aid(Remote And Wilderness First Aid)


What is R.A.W. First Aid?

R.A.W. stands for Remote And Wilderness First Aid. Often on a course, we are asked: "What's the difference between remote and wilderness first aid?" Many training companies will try and justify a difference. As far as we are concerned, there is no difference so we incorporate both. Category 5 offers a unique training course that is delivered under our remote area training division SOS (Specialised Outdoor Survival). Remote and Wilderness First Aid is designed for those who work and play in the outdoors. While "Senior" First Aid Courses give you great basic skills and knowledge, they don't account for being a long way from help.

You are classed as remote 

RAW first aid will give you extended knowledge and skills to deal with situations that may occur whilst in a remote location. We prepare students for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments, and improvised equipment. Our courses are scenario-based which means you get hands-on experience to prepare you for the real thing. They are fun, practical, and very comprehensive. We use stage makeup and blood to give a realistic effect and a true outdoor experience.
