Course Summary

Course for Western Provence Scouting Ireland - Apply via Provencial Trainer 


The REC 3 course is a specially tailored program for individuals who often find themselves in outdoor environments whether for work or for play. Its relevance is particularly felt among those involved in outdoor activities such as canoeing, sailing, mountaineering, hillwalking, and forest school activities, as well as organisations like scouting and guiding.
