This 40 hour course is exciting and fun, and builds up the pace without you even noticing as you gain huge confidence dealing with realistic first aid situations. It covers everything from the 20 hour course, and additionally advanced procedures and further extended care. It prepares you to provide care for longer than 24 hours. This course is a must for all vehicle users that wear helmets as it covers helmet removal. It is also more suited to people who work in the outdoors.
