Remote Skills

The Remote Skills Course is an innovative solution for remote practitioners, enabling participants to connect simultaneously from multiple sites and gain valuable hands-on skills training in pre-hospital emergencies. The course costs £150 per participant, with a maximum of four participants per site.

Using professional broadcasting equipment and our bespoke Training Pods, we are able to deliver training anywhere in Scotland. In fact, anywhere in the world. Contents of the training pods include:

The Pods also contain HD webcams ensuring the highest quality is maintained throughout the course. We manage the shipping of these Pods to and from your location and allow time for you to familiarise yourself with the equipment before the course and time to practice after the live sessions have been completed.
Technical and administrative support is also provided throughout the course so you can have peace of mind and are able to concentrate on the skills being taught.
