The REC3 (Rescue Emergency Care) First Aid and Defibrillator Course will now be held in Rathvilly, Carlow between 1st February – 3rd February 2013 (Friday evening, all day Saturday and Sunday). We still have a couple of places left for the course so if you are interested, please email The course costs €165.00 which includes all tuition, certification, venue hire and light refreshments.

Please note, a first aid qualification is required for the IDBF Participation Coach Award, plus it is a very useful skill to have in every day life. It may also be worthwhile contacting your local Sports Partnership as they may be able to assist with funding some of the course for you.
