First Aid Training 

Deer Central can facilitate emergency first aid training delivered by experienced and qualified Instructors. We believe the best training is delivered by those with practical experience in applying the skills taught and we won’t have anyone teach without this and a thorough knowledge of their subject.


Emergency First Aid at Work Level 3 + Forestry (EFAW+F)

EFAW+F is the minimum requirement for Forestry Commission and Woodland Trust leases. However, the course is ideally suited to equip any field sportsman with potentially lifesaving skills. The first section of the course covers the basic first aid at work format such as  burns, breaks and sprains, choking, strokes, heart attacks and CPR.

You can find more information on the website of the awarding body ‘First Aid Awards’

The second part of the course covers the ‘+F’ or Forestry module which includes, catastrophic haemorrhage, crush injuries, hypothermia and lymes disease. Our instructor will give you the knowledge and practical hands on experience in treating serious injuries through training aids for tourniquet application and wound packing and dressing.
