Trainers/Assessors should also be able to provide a detailed, chronological list of evidence to show that they have regularly provided Outdoor First Aid assessments during the previous three years. If this is limited, evidence of other first-aid assessments may be provided.
No formal Trainer/Assessor qualifications
It is recognised that trainer/assessors may not hold formal qualifications but may have significant experience in undertaking these roles. It is expected that the trainer/assessors be registered and working towards formal qualifications within one year and that the qualifications are gained within two years.
During this period a portfolio should be maintained and include details of knowledge and experience gained and the time period over which they were applied, and any contributing training undertaken and the learning outcomes achieved. There should be evidence that the individual has conducted at least two practical and two theoretical first-aid training/assessing sessions under the supervision of a qualified assessor.
