The course equipped me with the tools to act effectively in case of injury or illness in the wilderness. It also provided valuable insights into the challenges one may face when encountering such situations in remote areas.

The course provided me, as a leader of outdoor activities throughout the year, with an expanded toolkit and increased confidence in wilderness healthcare. Highly recommended for anyone who spends time in natural settings.

Course information

Our refresher course comprises a theoretical e-module and a comprehensive day of practical scenarios and seminars, designed to hone your management skills and decision-making abilities. To qualify for re-certification, you must have successfully completed a course in AOV or Expedition Medicine within the past three years and passed both the theoretical and practical examinations.

If your certification is more than three years old, you'll need to enroll in our standard course. Please note that those holding certifications from other organizations will also need to complete our standard course first.

Each certificate we issue remains valid for three years. Please be aware that as you gain immediate access to the course upon purchase, it is deemed to have started, and therefore, the right of withdrawal is not applicable. For more details, please refer to our terms and conditions here.
