Emergency First Aid REC3 in Myshall – Blackstairs co.Carlow

When an emergency occurs in the wilderness, during a hike or mountain climb, help can be 4-6 hours away turning a minor medical or trauma into a life-threatening situation. We aim to equip you with the skills and confidence to stabilize the situation until help arrives.

You will be able to learn the skills which are not taught in basic first aid courses.

Rescue Emergency Care level 3 has an internationally recognized curriculum. The course fulfills the requirements of all major sporting governing bodies, including Mountaineering Ireland and Canoe Ireland. It is run by outdoor medical experts with experience in both the medical field and outdoor pursuits   


REC 3 or Rescue Emergency Care level 3 is ideal for people working or participating in any leisure activities such as hiking in the Irish mountains.

Part of the course is indoor which covers most of the theory and an outdoor session which uses a balance of learning and practical intermixed with scenarios of real situations.

Approved by Scouting Ireland and Mountaineering Ireland, it is ideally suited to outdoor activities which include: canoeing, hiking, climbing, kayaking, mountain guiding, and Gaisce participants.
