Outdoor Pre Hospital Emergency Care (PHEC)
Introducing our extraordinary Horizons 5-Day Outdoor Pre-Hospital Emergency Care First Aid Course, a comprehensive and intensive program designed to equip you with a high level of emergency medical skills in outdoor settings. Whether you're an outdoor enthusiast, a professional in the adventure industry, or someone who simply wants to be prepared for any situation, this course is your ultimate gateway to becoming a certified expert in pre-hospital emergency care.
Led by highly experienced tutors, this course goes beyond the basics, immersing you in a dynamic learning environment where you'll gain the knowledge and confidence to handle critical emergencies in remote and challenging outdoor environments. From backcountry expeditions to the sea, you'll be prepared to respond effectively and save lives when every second counts.
Over the course of five action-packed days, you'll dive deep into a wide range of topics, including advanced trauma management, wilderness survival skills, environmental emergencies, advanced airway management, cardiac emergencies, and much more. Through a combination of engaging lectures, hands-on simulations, and realistic scenarios, you'll develop the critical thinking and practical skills necessary to make life-saving decisions in high-pressure situations.
Horizons was involved in the creation of the PHEC course and we maintain the 5-day programme as we believe it meets the original PHEC standard and provides students with quality in-depth learning. The five day course is designed for those people who value learning, skills and want to build their confidence to the top end.
On completion of the course you will receive an electronic first aid certificate which is valid for 2 years and any unit standards gained. After 2 years a 2-day refresher course needs to be attended.
