If you have a group undertaking a DofE expedition, the Expedition Training Framework requires the participants to have appropriate knowledge of First Aid for the environment they will be travelling in.


Current guidance from the Expedition Frameworks recommends that participants have received training in the following:
  • Action in an emergency - resuscitation, airway, breathing and circulation;
  • Recognition and treatment of hypothermia and heatstroke;
  • The treatment of wounds and bleeding;
  • Treatment for shock;
  • The treatment of blisters, cuts, abrasions, minor burns and scalds, headaches, insect bites, sunburn, splinters;
  • The recognition of more serious conditions such as sprains,strains, dislocations and broken limbs;
  • Knowing what to do in the case of an accident or emergency;
  • Summoning help - what people need to know, telephoning for help, written message; and
  • Getting help, self-help and waiting for help to arrive, keeping safe and warm, helping people to find you.
CHMAS facilitate many expeditions a year and this experience is used to provide fun and appropriate first aid training for your teams. Using this approach ensures the participants will have the confidence to deal with any first aid emergencies that they encounter


The participants will be provided with a Certificate of Attendance from CHMAS detailing the syllabus covered or if you prefer we can certificate the course through the British Heart Foundation - Heartstart Scheme or Rescue Emergency Care (REC) Life Saver scheme.
