First Aid

30th May

The aim of each training day is to give attendees the skills they need to lead a safe and enjoyable Trail Cycling or Archery session, as well as to perform quick and basic maintenance normally required during an event.

Each day can accommodate 8 people for Archery and 8 people for Trail Cycling training.

Those intending to lead Trail Cycling will also need to hold a current First Aid qualification which needs to be outdoor specific.


Renewing your training

Please note that:

Archery Training needs to be renewed every 3 years and this can only be done by attending a Day 2 or by arranging to run some sessions at Lendrick Muir under observation (please contact us to arrange this).

Trail Cycling training needs to be renewed every two years, either by attending the update course/furthering skills day or a Day 2. Individuals who have completed the 2 day Trail Cycle training are required to attend an update or refresher course every 2 years. This course will reinforce information from the 2 day course and build on previous learning.


Catering & Food Hygiene Training

Please contact the Volunteers Unit if you are interested in attending an Elementary Food Hygiene Course or a Catering Training Day.


Information for Team Leaders

Trail Cycling and Archery must only be led by people who have been trained to do so. Training from other organisations may be sufficient; please contact us to discuss.

If your event offers these activities, please ensure that at least one person from your team has completed training. If you anticipate that this will not be possible, please contact us as soon as possible.
