Course summary

Remote Emergency Care Level 3 / Rescue & Incident Management Training

Duration : 5 Days

Outdoor First Aid

A 5  day course that is recognised by  ISKGA , BCU, RYA and other outdoor governing bodies. On this course we focus on dealing with incidents far from medical help with the minimal equipment you would carry while participating in or leading outdoor activities in the marine environment. Again the emphasis is on practical skills with plenty of hands-on practice including lots of  marine outdoor scenarios.

Future courses can be tailored to the requirements of special interest groups, for example climbers, mountain leaders, paddlesports instructors or divemasters.

A holistic 5 day course covering the REC Level 3 Outdoor First Aid and followed by on the water scenarios and Incident management. A fantastic course for any level of paddler. It is a Generic module for International Sea Kayaking Guide Association and this course is a module for the ISKGA Coastal Guide. The Incident management element of this course will be counted towards two of the days of  the ISKGA  Incident management module. 

Location and times

We meet between 09:00 – 09:30 at Sea Kayaking Cornwall Expedition Centre to brief, plan and pack for the day. We aim to finish around 4:30pm however location chosen for the day may alter these times.
