Course duration and location

Mental training is known above all in high-performance sport, where top athletes prepare for the psychological pressure of a competitive situation. However, people face situations with high stress levels outside of sport, too.  

Mental training in a rescue service – and beyond 

In a rescue service, mission crews are regularly in situations that they personally can find to be very stressful. Keeping a cool head can have life-saving importance at these times. For this reason, we have customised the key content and methods of mental training for the needs of a rescue service. This benefits pilots, paramedics/HEMS TC members and emergency doctors – and our knowledge can help people in other occupations find success as well. 

The content of this one-day intensive course includes training for medical skills, concentration and relaxation exercises, dealing with critical situations and more.  

It is enriched with examples of training and application from high-performance sport. There will also be challenges for you. In the forecast training, you experience how high-performance athletes train their prediction skills. You also learn the cornerstones of your personal secret to success. We take the findings and transfer them to your practical day-to-day missions together.  

These one-day courses take place on the DRF Luftrettung academy’s premises in Bühl.
