Course duration and location

This interactive online course is for any aspiring helicopter rescue doctor. Our experienced instructors teach you the essential structures of air rescue and provide you with valuable practice-based tips from their day-to-day air rescue work. We address the medical aspects as well as flight operation, giving you optimal preparation for your missions in an air rescue service. 

This course’s major benefit is that you can participate in it from anywhere – it is held exclusively online. After the online class is finished, an air rescue base provides an introduction to operating the materials and equipment that they use. The theory of the course is therefore perfectly mixed with practical exercises at the base.

  • Introduction to air rescue
