What is the training like?

You can watch some of our YouTube channel videos to get a feel for what the training is like and what #trainforreal means.

For more detail on the course itself you can read the full learning outcomes, assessment methods etc on it’s dedicated page: First Aid on Locations training.

This first aid on locations course is highly practical and reflects our #trainforreal and “first aid is a contact sport” mantras. Delegates are faced with scenarios involving casualty simulation including fake blood.

Media first aid training is a specialist topic, in which Lazarus Training has years of experience. Having worked closely with large media organisations and regulating bodies, we can now offer a range of media first aid training courses covering all the requirements of the industry or sector. You can find out more about Lazarus Training on this site, or our main website.

To find out more about our training methods visit our scenarios and simulations page or contact us on 0800 242 5210.

Our range of media first aid training also includes First Aid in the Office or Studio, First Aid in Remote Locations or First Aid in Hostile Locations.

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.

Tourniquet testing- RATS

The use of tourniquets in pre-hospital care is now widely accepted, at least it is within “sensible” circles and an increasing number of our media clients are including them into their first aid kits.

Because of this change in the contents of issued first aid kits the use of tourniquets is a staple part of many of our first aid courses [such as our FPOS I and media first aid training] and we therefore take quite an interest in new products hitting the market. As we become aware of new models we like to put them thorough a series of tests to check the ease of use and ease of training, two areas of specific interest to us, with the later often being overlooked in most online reviews of new tourniquets.

tourniquet testingYou might have noticed our “Tourniquet testing” videos gradually appearing on our YouTube Channel [see below], but the latest addition which has literally just arrived is the RATS – Rapid Application Tourniquet System. We have been following [with some amusement] the CATS versus RATS debate online. Our favourite line so far being “CATS eat RATS”. Based on this alone we had to check out the Rapid Application Tourniquet system and include it in our tourniquet testing.

 

We will be uploading a product review and tourniquet test in the next few days, so keep checking here or subscribe to our YouTube Channel [you can do this by clicking here].

If you are aware of new tourniquets hitting the market that you think we should look at [or you have a new tourniquet coming out], drop us a line on info@lazarustraining.co.uk to have it included in our tourniquet testing.

 

 

Media first aid training

Media first aid training is a specialist topic, in which Lazarus Training has years of experience. Having worked closely with large media organisations and regulating bodies, we can now offer a range of media first aid training courses covering all the requirements of the industry or sector.

 

The basic level is the First Aid in the Office or Studio course, this one day course is designed to meet the requirements of media staff in static locations, with medical help nearby but who may be mixing with the public.

 

Our First Aid on Locations course is just that, two days of practical media first aid training, covering the basics up to dealing with a road traffic collision. This course is highly practical, including the use of training scenarios with fake blood and injuries. This course includes the First Aid in the Office or Studio qualification.

 

Our First Aid in Remote Locations lasts three days and builds upon the First Aid on Locations course. Designed for groups working remote from medical assistance this courses includes travel health and prolonged care of someone injured or taken ill.

 

All our training is focused on the individuals attending the course and their likely working environment. We ensure that the training reflects the needs of the delegates and the first aid equipment they will have access to [or not as the case may be]. Our training is well known for its practical nature and is summed up in our #trainforreal ethos.

 

Assessment is carried out during the course, meaning there is no final written exam- as there isn’t in real life. Delegates need to be prepared for the physical nature of the training and need to wear older clothing which they won’t mind getting dirty!
