A L3 Outdoor First Aid qualification may also be a better alternative to an FAW for outdoor workers.

This is a busy weekend, and taking place both inside and out; whatever the weather! Be prepared to act as a casualty, spend time laying on the ground, out in the wet, cold, snow and, maybe, sunshine.
