Rec first aid course is the course you need if you work or play in the outdoors.
During most first aid incidents your patient will be indoors in a urban environment and usually has a short ambulance wait time. An incident which occurs on the side of a mountain in adverse weather conditions may have a wait time of hours before mountain rescue gets to you. We teach you how to keep your patient warm and care for him/her in the long term in adverse weather conditions.
