Sunrise Bushcraft Outdoor Academy

Bushcraft Courses, National Qualifications and Accreditations 

Sunrise Academy runs a full compliment of Accredited First Aid Qualifications

Accredited through the ITC we are delighted to offer a range of accredited first aid courses. 


ITC First Aid Ltd is an expanding recognised awarding body that develops qualifications and approves, supports and verifies the activity of ITC Centres delivering environment specific, well resourced, tailored first aid training to all sectors and an increasing range of other regulated qualifications as requested by our Centres.


They develop qualifications that can become part of Qualification Credit Frameworks.  First Aid qualification regulation has recently fallen within the remit of theOfqual (England), DCELLS (Wales), CCEA (Northern Ireland) and the SQA (Scotland).


ITC promotes the training course and qualification programmes of ITC accredited Centres and provides a 'one stop shop' for members of the public looking for a recognised appropriate first aid qualification.


Sunrise Academy offers the following courses:


Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) 


For those employees in low risk workplaces e.g. offices, shops and call centres. This is a 6 hour (1-day) award. Cost £80


ITC 16 Hour Outdoor Remote First Aid


Our ITC Outdoor First Aid course will validate your ML, SPA, MIA, MIC, BCU, RYA, BOF, Mountain Bike Instructor, Ski Leader, Cave and Mine Leader qualifications or any other coaching or instructing qualifications that require a First Aid certificate. It is the course of choice for most outdoor practitioners.

The course is also suitable for anyone working or playing in the outdoors, such as walkers, climbers, cyclists, paddlers, golfers, anglers, school party leaders, Scout Leaders, D of E trainers and participants, forestry, agriculture and construction workers, etc.


The course is designed so that participants follow systematic, straightforward training programmes. First Aid is a practical subject and practical, hands-on training techniques are the hallmark of our courses. Candidates manage simulated incidents on the training courses, making real decisions and feeling real emotions.
