Recfirstaid Ltd and its associated network of highly qualified instructors are outdoor first aid, expedition and wilderness first aid experts. Rescue first aid is a crucial life - saving skill. It is particularly important that people are confident and skilled in outdoor first aid when working or playing in remote locations where help can take time to arrive. We believe that the best way to gain these skills is through hands - on, practical outdoor first aid training, which is enjoyable and leaves people with the knowledge and confidence to know what to do in an emergency.
We always adapt our remote first aid training to meet the exact needs of our clients. Our trainers are experts in a range of fields and environments, which allows us to tailor courses to your needs. Their experience applying outdoor first aid skills and wo rking as wilderness medics or outdoor trainers allows them to make the training relevant to all situations from an office environment, teaching outdoor activities at a school, weekends climbing in the mountains, adventurous expeditions, white - water kayaking, cycling or for teams working in the world’s most austere and remote environments – we can run courses focused on your needs.
We have been involved in training personnel from all over the world, for expeditions, adventure holidays, adventure racing and providing medical assist to personnel in places like Bolivia, Kazakhstan, The Royal Kingdom of Bhutan, Alaska and Nepal.
Our remote, austere and rescue courses are certified as part of the Emergency Care Series scheme which has been operating, evolving and developing since its initial concept and design in the Scottish outdoors over 25 yrs. ago. All REC courses are designed to give you the confidence that you can and will cope in the event of an accident, everything we teach is quality assured, and benefits from the latest thinking both in austere / remote first aid and teaching techniques.
The modular and progressive program of REC courses takes you from the basics of CPR, accident procedure and minor bleeds on our basic course through to dealing with broken bones and falls on outdoor first aid training and culminating in our remote, expedition first aid and wilderness first responder courses.
We’re always happy to talk through your specific needs to help you find the right course for you – so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
