Remote Emergency Care Re-validation

The course aims to update your first aid skills and acquaint you with any new developments in the REC scheme.

Remote Emergency Care level 3 has an internationally recognised curriculum. The course fulfils the requirements of all major sporting governing bodies including Mountaineering Ireland and Canoe Ireland. It is run by outdoor medical experts with experience in both the medical field and in outdoor pursuits.

To ensure all participants get the appropriate individual attention from the trainer we restrict numbers to a maximum of 10 persons. We also believe in delivering a portion of the course outdoors to make the scenarios as realistic as possible.

(This is sometimes offered to individuals as a bolt-on to day two of our REC 3 courses. Please contact us for dates & details:
