What will I learn?

The Forestry First Aid +F (QAR) qualification is ideal for those who work or intend to work in a forestry, agricultural or remote environment, such as tree
surgeons and farmers. Successful learners will be equipped with the knowledge and practical skills needed to treat a range of injuries and diseases that could occur in these environments, such as Lyme disease and catastrophic bleeding.

This qualification meets the recommendations of the First Aid at Work- Forestry Commission Policy and also confirms a learner’s ability to meet a ‘licence to practice’ as determined by the Health and Safety (First
Aid) Regulations 1981, making it perfect for those operating in a wide range of workplaces.
