The UK Remote Immediate Emergency Care Advanced (URIECA) course is designed specifically for those working in the most remote environments where a patient with life threatening injuries may be a long way from an ambulance response. This may be among offshore wind farms or other, similarly removed locations. The aim of the course is to reduce preventable pre-hospital deaths by training you to identify and treat life-threatening emergencies sustained in these remote areas and prepare casualties for rapid evacuation to hospital.

As the European offshore renewables sector continues to experience growth and the distance from the shore to wind farm turbines increases, medical response times for attending the scene of a casualty are lengthening. As a result, leading operators are having to place greater emphasis on advanced first aid capabilities and the provision of lifesaving skills.

It has been recognised that health and safety legislation and basic first aid training clearly don’t satisfy the requirements for workers, contractors and technicians operating in remote and offshore locations.

Facing unique risks with specialist skills



Your employees, contractors and technicians working in the offshore and remote locations face unique risks, so equip them with the skills to successfully overcome those challenges with confidence.

Should an incident or accident occur where a casualty needs to be stabilised, receive first aid and pain relief, our advanced first aid training course delivers best practice training, helping to upskill your first aider to an advanced first aider and increase their competence levels.
