Medical, Rescue and Recovery CPD Seminars

The Scottish Association of Motor Sports Clubs' training team is running a series of 6 bi-monthly webinars aimed specifically at Medical, Rescue and Recovery personnel involved in a first response role at incidents. They will run on Zoom and you can join in with a computer, tablet or smartphone. Each session usually lasts for around 90 minutes and you'll receive a certificate as evidence of attendance. Attendance is restricted so that participants can focus more on the medical and operational issues than they perhaps could in a more open session. Motorsport UK licence numbers will be verified before your registration is confirmed.

Last year, SAMSC ran 4 seminars, with a total attendance of 833. On average, 74% of delegates rated these sessions as excellent and a further 22% rated them as good.
