Remote Emergency Care Level 1 First Aid Course

The Remote Emergency Care Level 1 First Aid Course is a one-day practical course focusing on first response skills. The Level 1 first aider will be certified as a basic responder qualified to deal with a life-threatening incident. The course involves plenty of hands-on practice including outdoor scenarios and is ideal for coaches, club members, volunteers, youth workers, scout leaders, summer camp leaders or any individuals interested in gaining a Level 1 qualification in first aid. Remote Emergency Care courses are designed with the great outdoors in mind. The course focuses on all the traditional first aid skills but with the emphasis on the fact that it could take longer for emergency services to arrive.

Upon successful completion of the course participants are presented with a Remote Emergency Care Level 1 Certificate which is valid for two.

Course Fee
The course is subsidised by Waterford Sports Partnership for Waterford based coaches & players
– fee payable is €45 per person with a maximum of 12 participants per course.
Those interested outside Waterford please contact the office for fee and availability information.

The course will be facilitated by Pat Reid of First Aid for Life. First Aid for Life instructors are wilderness emergency medical technicians and experts in their particular field. All are currently serving members of Mountain Rescue Teams, on 24 hour call, 365 days per year. They bring all of this experience to the courses creating scenarios that are based on real life emergencies/rescues.
