Outreach has been providing rescue and safety training for over 25 years. Our philosophy has always been that time spent in the early stages of skills development is time well spent – we have never subscribed to the “Fast Track” school of thinking.

Our Emergency Service customers have some unique problems to contend with. Specialist rescue skills are still relatively new and not something that is “Core “ in the sense of being called upon daily, weekly or even monthly. The result of this is, inevitably, a degree of skills fade that has to be countered through regular consolidation training and development. A solid base of initial training also helps here. Having an understanding of why things are done provides a base to build on that reduces the impact of skill fade.

Our facilities and high quality water venues / conditions allow us to develop skills during our courses to a high level. It is the time spent on the difficult edge transition, in the complex water conditions or with a deteriorating casualty that makes for a good rescue team member and is the reason that many of our courses are timetabled at a day or so longer than some other providers. Our industrial training facilities allow us to deliver realistic training in a safe environment. We are flexible in our approach and can deliver at our site or, subject to agreement and criteria, at your venue, using your equipment or ours.

"Our commitment to industry includes the highest standards of training meeting all legislative requirements in the disciplines we deliver. We are able to deliver programmes through recognised awarding bodies such as City & Guilds and Qualsafe as well as developing and delivering bespoke courses for customers with very specific needs and unique problems. We also work closely with industry offering advice, helping to identify and resolve most problems with a pragmatic approach. And if we can't help? then we'll signpost you to others who can. We'll only point at other organisations we trust and that hold with our organisation philosophy and ethic.
