Trainer Membership

Remote Emergency Care facilitates practical, concept-based training in first aid and pre-hospital care for rural, remote and wilderness groups.

We pride ourselves on the quality and diversity of our trainers. To be a Remote Emergency Care trainer, not only do you need an excellent medical knowledge, but you also need extensive outdoor experience.

Through a robust process of trainer training, continuing professional development and quality assurance, we ensure that our trainers have the freedom to deliver courses in their own preferred styles: We tell our trainers what to deliver, but never, ever how to deliver. This unique approach ensures that creativity in training flourishes. We love it when our trainers come up with new ideas &ndash and we also love sharing those new ideas within the team.


Remote Emergency Care trainers deliver courses worldwide through their own training businesses based in the UK, Ireland and continental Europe. To meet the Remote Emergency Care trainers, visit the Training Providers profile pages. Members also work as freelance trainers for other Trainer Members and Centre Members.

Members can advertise, provide and certificate all of their first aid courses though Remote Emergency Care as long as the course participants achieve the target core competencies.
