The Rescue Emergency Care 2 Day course is run either at Blairvadach Outdoor Centre in Rhu, or at The Climbing Centre in Ibrox.

This course covers all the important aspects of basic first aid, and applies it to active sports and more remote situations. While some of the course is delivered indoors, we take every opportunity to use the climbing areas for scenarios, and head outside on the second day, to spend time in an outdoor environment covering further aspects and more scenarios.
