We have spaces left on our Pre-hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) course running in December.
PHTLS is internationally recognised as the leading continuing education programme for pre-hospital emergency trauma care. PHTLS is accredited by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT).
The course is aimed at any person engaged in the delivery of pre-hospital care to trauma patients. It is taught in accordance with the PHTLS syllabus but also has a strong emphasis on hazardous and industrial rescue environments.

As you know, the results of the Adrenaline 2 trial have now been published. Here is a great resource published by Warwick University summarising the results.

The Human Factors in Hazardous Environments course develops your knowledge and skills in the application of Human Factors (HF) principles in a variety of hazardous environments that you may encounter when providing care or rescue activities.

- Water Rescue
- Working at Height
- Confined and Restricted Spaces
- Tactical Considerations
- Fire and Rescue Searches
We have a few spaces left on the course running 30th July – 3rd August but if you want to take part you’ll need to book by 20th July to allow time for the online activities.
