The complexity of wilderness medicine makes training wilderness pre-hospital care a rewarding and challenging profession.
Remote Emergency Care believes in concept-based training, as protocols often have severe limitations in diverse environments. In order to effectively communicate these concepts, Remote Emergency Care trainers are experts not only in medicine and the outdoors, but also in professional training techniques.
