REC has been providing first aid courses for the outdoor sector for over 30 years and is a well-known and respected first aid training organisation. In October 2013, HSE ceased to monitor or approve First Aid at Work training providers in England, Wales and Scotland. Instead, companies are advised to carry out due diligence on any training provider that they might use, and HSE have published a list of questions that you should be asking of the provider. We have the questions here, along with answers.
First aid courses which are recognised by Mountain Training UK (MTUK), British Orienteering Federation (BOF), Royal Yachting Association (RYA), British Canoe Union (BCU) and many other National Sporting Governing Bodies.
The Rescue Emergency Care scheme was originally devised by Dr Bob Phillips and Prof G Page for the Scottish Ski Patrols. It was felt that other more traditional National First Aid Associations did not make provision for those individuals operating in more remote areas.
Rescue Emergency Care (REC) courses were therefore designed to cover not only the first aid needs required to meet the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines, but also first aid for those people working or playing in more remote areas. First aid for times when medical help is often hours instead of minutes away, and environmental issues such as the weather and working in difficult and remote terrains must be considered.
