Please note that places on courses are limited and are intended for the sectors and organisations we support. Our 'Why' is supporting organisations and good causes such as NGO's, Rescue Organisations, expedition teams and others that need excellent training at reasonable cost.

Excellent course content with a well balanced mix of theory and practical.


Excellent (experience of the Faculty) as always! 


Without a doubt, wound care to this level has been missing from my skill set and this has now given me that.


Would you recommend to others ? ‘Without a doubt’.


Back in Cornwall after an amazing six days at @plasybreninofficial with @remotearearisk completing three modules in the R/EMO:TE medic programme. The four day foundation module included everything from frostbite to tropical medicine followed by an intense day of dentistry and maxillofacial injuries and suturing and staples.I'm already looking forward to heading back in the autumn for the Prolonged Field Care weekend. 


What would you change, if anything ? : ‘Nothing.’


As usual, the instruction is superb and thoroughly enjoyable. This is my third course with you and I will be back for more.  They also add to my knowledge in my day job … in the ambulance service though more so as a responder (in overseas disaster response). 




…two fascinating days of CPD with @remotearearisk learning about Emergency Dentistry and Facial Trauma In An Austere Environment and Wound Care Management.


Faculty: ideal skill set to deliver this module.


Very useful to refresh skills, particularly in IV cannulation & IO insertion.


Would you recommend the course to others ? Yes - good to be able to have a recommended course.


A fantastic week of learning in Snowdonia with the good people of Remote Area Risk International.  New people met. Knowledge and skills learnt and refreshed. Experiences shared. New friendships made. Execeptional learning and faculty in fantastic surroundings. For anyone working in the austere environment be it in the UK or abroad, then take a look at the courses offered; highly recommended.


What did you find most useful? : changing dressings - not been taught a ‘technique’ before so better prepared:
