If you are planning on spending time out on the water then a First Aid Course is a good idea, our Rescue Emergency Care First Aid Course is tailored towards outdoor sports and will teach you valuable skills that can be applied not only to water based activities but to a range of outdoor pursuits such as climbing, skiing, mountain biking, hiking etc.

Our course is authorised by Rescue Emergency Care:

Rescue Emergency Care (REC) is a well known and respected first aid training organisation founded in the mid 1980s by Dr Robert Phillips while working in remote healthcare and adventure rescue services. REC was set up to provide a comprehensive and flexible training programme that extends the competency of the participants. This unique style of first aid training has been delivered by REC trainers throughout the UK and Europe for over 20 years.


REC believes that access to first aid and trainer training should be inclusive and ensures that individuals from all walks of life can take the opportunity to train or be trained in first aid. REC specialises in training the trainer so that organisations can fulfill their own training needs. The courses are practical and innovative which brings a fresh dimension to learning first aid.
