Offering learners a suite of Pre-hospital care training courses, suitable for delegates at all levels; from advanced first aid courses for high-risk work environments, to courses for those looking to progress their career within the NHS or private ambulance services. We are able to help any first aider to improve their skills and knowledge when providing first aid to a casualty.

We are a leading provider to Healthcare Registrants, other healthcare professionals and healthcare assistants working within the Primary Health & Dental care setting across the NHS, HM Prison Service, Police Services, Community Mental Health Teams and School’s Nurses.

Advanced First Aid

Where organisations find that their workplace requires a higher level of first aid training that is above the standard First Aid at Work qualification, our Level 3 High Risk Environments First Aid at Work may satisfy your needs. However sometimes an organisation may also require a more advanced set of skills and our Level 3 Initial Person on Scene of an Incident (IPoS-I) is perfect for industries and sectors who need this more advanced level of first aid training. Industries and sectors that have implemented this training with us include:

Police, Fire and Rescue services, Airports, Construction and Demolition sites, Waste Management, Energy Providers, Security services, Manufacturing, Laboratories, HSE designated COMAH sites and other remote/ high risk environments. Check out our dedicated Pre-Hospital care courses here.

Attending any of our pre-hospital care courses can also act as a pathway into a career in the emergency services. Our Level 3 Initial Person on Scene of an Incident (IPoS-I) are perfect for those looking to progress into roles such as an Emergency Care Assistant, Intermediate Ambulance Practitioner, Event Medical Provider or Healthcare Assistant.

Quality Standards: Primary care

Healthcare organisations have an obligation to provide a high-quality resuscitation service, and to ensure that staff are trained and updated regularly to a level of proficiency appropriate to their expected role. We can support Primary care settings which includes GP surgeries, out of hours and walk in centres to include all staff in that primary care organisation, including non-clinical staff, who should undergo regular training in resuscitation of both adults and children to the level appropriate to their role. Clinical staff within these Primary care settings are required to undergo annual updates. We deliver Immediate Life Support and Paediatric Life Support training for clinical staff, alongside Basic Life Support and AED training to the primary Healthcare provider’s non-clinical staff. This is in line with the current expected standards laid out by the Resuscitation Council.

Quality Standards: Primary dental care

Healthcare organisations offering Primary dental care have an obligation to provide a high-quality resuscitation service. Dental practitioners, dental care professionals and dental healthcare staff are required to attend training annually. We offer the dental practice setting both Immediate Life Support and if required Paediatric Immediate Life Support training meeting the General Dental Councils guidelines who supports the Resuscitation Councils quality standards.
