Outdoor First Aid Courses London
React First have been running Outdoor First Aid courses (16hrs over 2 days) in London since 2007. Our courses are always over-subscribed so whilst the views might not always be as beautiful as North Wales or Scotland it certainly doesn't affect the training you receive!

- Shadwell Basin Outdoor Activity Centre, London, E1W 3TD - weekend Outdoor First Aid courses are held here.
