We offer two types of First-Aid Training:
Emergency First-Aid for working overseas.
First-Aid for the Work place in the UK.
Emergency First-Aid for Working Overseas.
This will loosely follow a First Person on the Scene Basic programme but will be very much adapted to what you are doing, where you are going and will include elements of dealing with severe trauma. Our experienced trainers have seen many types of emergencies and can pass on their experience to you.
We take everyone back to basics as not everybody can always remember what they have been taught. We refresh memories and ensure that you have the basic skills to keep someone alive. We teach you how to improvise when you don't have your first-aid kit with you. We also teach subjects such as how you keep someone alive when there is no ambulance coming, how you stop severe bleeding, how you treat someone who has been burnt in an explosion or been shot by a lone gunman.
We either fit this around hostile environment training or can run it as a stand-alone course. We can also run this as a certificated course if required.
Medical Training for complex, remote or hostile regions
We can run any type of medical training from basic first-aid, to remote & hostile environment trauma training. Courses can be tailored to the client and the duration can fit the client’s time schedule. Training is hands-on, practical and can be country specific.
Examples of modules covered; Basic first-aid, road traffic accidents, environmental health, travel health, tropical emergencies and ballistic injuries.
We can run advanced trauma courses using our qualified paramedics who are also able to offer the accredited and certificated First Person On the Scene (FPOS I) if you require this.
Whether you are going to Ecuador, Eritrea, Egypt or East Temor the skills are the same just adapted to suit the environment and the level of emergency response that may or may not be coming. We know this because our trainers have worked in most of these places. Take a look at our experirenced consultants.

First-aid provision in the workplace saves lives.
