Safety Comes First!
Outdoor First Aid (Level 2) + Field Leader Training Week
Here at Ahsante Tours we believe safety comes first and this is something we take very seriously. Right before the year ended, we teamed up with UK based, Training Expertise, to run an Outdoor First Aid & Field Leader training for our guides. Training Expertise provides tailored high quality, hands-on first aid and safety training for remote locations with all their courses being certified on the Remote Emergency Care (REC) scheme. We picked Training Expertise particularly because their courses are tailored to the client. The training was a success and our guides learnt a lot from their instructor, Angie, who they all thought was just a fantastic teacher and leader.
What did our guides learn?
Our guides took the Outdoor First Aid and Field Leader course over several days. The course covers the core skills of first aid applied in the outdoors whilst also looking at major injuries such as broken bones, head and spinal injuries and hypo and hyperthermia. The course puts a lot of focus on dealing with incidents far from medical help with the minimal equipment you would carry while participating in or leading outdoor activities. A lot of emphasis is on practical skills with plenty of hands-on practice including lots of outdoor scenarios.
What does this mean for you?
The safety of our clients and our crew is of utmost importance to us and that’s why we invest a lot of resources to ensure our mountain team is well trained and ready to manage situation that may arise as far as safety is concerned. We believe in order for our guides to be the best, they have to be trained by the best! That’s why we’ve had the honor of partnering with Training Expertise this year. Our goal is to get our whole team, clients and crew, up Kilimanjaro, and all other mountains we climb, and back down safely while having a great time in the process.
