From our feedback
Over two days at our camp on the Trisuli river, Robin provided valuable whitewater specific first aid training. It was great to have a course specifically tailored to the whitewater industry. We have to say, it was some of the best first aid training we have ever received and even our most experienced guides felt it was valuable.
Thanks again Robin!
A Himalayan size thank you goes out to Robin Bushell from Mountain River Crag Outdoor First Aid Training for sponsoring our Still Paddling Scholarship recipients with Wilderness First Aid Training.
Its been almost 2 years since the Gorkha Earthquake, and our scholarship recipients have grown from traumatized trainees to quality junior guides. We could not have supported the development of their careers without the generosity of such companies like Mountain River Crag. The future is bright.
Robin not only provided 1st time practical whitewater focused wilderness first aid training to our trainees, but also offered refresh & re-certification to our experienced guides. Its amazing to work with a passionate outdoor professional who understands that learning emergency procedures is best done actively participating and practicing in a real life outdoor environment. Our crew were thrilled with the quality instruction and challenging scenarios which took place on the Upper Seti River – our favorite back yard run right here in Pokhara, adventure capital of Nepal.
Thanks again Robin!
'An excellent course - most enjoyable first aid I've done in a long time 5/5' - Outdoor First Aid - Canoe and Kayak Specific - Jan 2016
'Rob runs an efficient and informative first aid course. He took the time to tailor it to Kayaking, which was extremely useful. I've been on a lot of first aid courses over the last 10 years and I still took away new things. 5/5' Outdoor First Aid - Canoe and Kayak Specific Feb 2015
'The best part was how relevant to kayaking this course was, it was great and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone!'

On behalf of the Phoenix Canoe Club, thanks for the first aid training Robin ran for us. The scenarios were very realistic. March 2017

We are a whitewater rafting company in Nepal and had all our staff take the course. All the staff who had previously taken courses told us that this was by far the best course they had done. Everyone said that they appreciated the river scenarios on the second day, getting to put the teachings into practice was so useful. Robin was professional and friendly. Excellent course especially for those in whitewater industry!
So having done lots of previous first aid courses and now training to be a paramedic, I wasn't particularly looking forward to this course.
But Robin did an excellent job. keeping us busy. Both the theory and practical was very good. It combined into an amazing day practicing scenarios on the hill, I loved it....great fun and really informative, the best first aid course I have ever done .
