Lazarus Training app is available for your phone!

Our media first aid training is all about building confidence and knowledge in life saving skills. But we want people to have easy access to memory joggers and this is were our Lazarus Training app comes in.

Our #trainforreal courses are all about immersive, practical, empowering training. We clearly see the delegates’ confidence and knowledge increase during our time with them. But we all benefit from a bit of revision and recapping, so to make this as easy as possible Lazarus Training app is now available for free from the usual places such as the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Most of us are rarely without our mobile phones nowadays, something which must be great for the speed of 999 calls, but with our Lazarus Training app we can make this an opportunity for that much needed revision.

What’s in the Lazarus Training App?

Lazarus Training App 2

We have tried to keep the size of the app small [we all know the pains of juggling phone storage], but to give access to the main information you would want. There is a calendar of our forthcoming training events; under Training you will find overviews of many topics from out courses ie AED use; Guidelines has a range of first aid guidelines and mnemonics and of course their is a news section.

We understand that you may not want to hear everything that is going in at Lazarus Training, so you can select what notifications you want and additionally give us feedback, on both the app and our training, via the main menu.

We will be adding new content to the app all the time and as the technology evolves we’ll try and find new ways to use the app. We now have videos embedded into the Training section and plan to increase this over time.

If you are out of signal, or have turned off your data, you can still access the main parts of the app, such as guidelines but you won’t be able to access the video content.

One of the reasons for the app was to ensure that we stay in touch with the great people that have attended our training courses, so we have included a form that you can complete if you use your first aid.  We really are interested in your experiences as this can help us adapt the training for the future. So whether you download it to get the guideline reminders, check our training calendar or to let our know your feedback- just download it!

First aid training revision

On our #trainforreal first aid training courses we aim to make the training stick in peoples’ minds. We try and immerse our delegates in the topic via practical scenarios, casualty simulation and video presentations to ensure they leave the course confident. But three years is a long time to go between courses [obviously we would recommend more frequent training]. So we are in the process of producing first aid training revision tools.

One method we are trying is placing lots of clips onto our YouTube channel, Vimeo and Periscope.  All of this content is placed in the public domain to help with first aid training revision. We hope it helps anyone that has been on our first aid training courses, but we aiming to have the content available, free of charge, and if that means other people find it and access it, that’s ok. We just want to make sure that there is maximum change of people getting some form of regular first aid training revision.

First Aid Training Revision

Clearly we would like people to get “hands on”, practical first aid training revision, but if that is not possible for everyone, then hopefully our YouTube channel playlist [below] might be helpful.

Our YouTube channel has a wide range of videos, as we have a wide range of courses. But we have tried to break them down into some helpful playlists. Above is the media first aid training playlist, but feel free to try out some of the others as well.

Don’t forget to return to our channel regularly as we will be updating our first aid training revision tools.

We are looking to launch a smartphone app in the early part of 2016 and would love to hear you ideas of what you would like included.

If you have any feedback on videos you would like on the YouTube Channel or content of the app please contact us on info@lazarustraining.co.uk or (+44) 0800 242 5210.
