– saving lives since 2010
At Venture Medical we use our years of practical experience to provide an appropriate skill-based training course that takes normal urban practices and, using limited resources we would have available in reality, makes them relevant to the medical problems we may experience in the outdoors.
There are still areas where you will not get a mobile phone signal. Rescues will still be hampered or delayed by terrain and weather conditions. In reality, a medical emergency in the wilderness is a grave situation.
At Venture Medical we aim to provide you with the skills and knowledge to provide emergency medical care in remote and hostile environments with limited equipment and the possibility of a long and arduous evacuation to definitive medical care.
In remote settings, the practitioner will be called upon to make decisions that even ambulance crews, who will routinely transport to a hospital, may not be called upon to make. It may be appropriate to attempt to straighten limb fractures, clean wounds, or consider clearing a potential spinal injury in a remote setting, techniques you would never dream of attempting in the comfort of an urban setting.
The level of instruction provided over both days also makes this course suitable for meeting the requirements of various NGB Awards such as MLTB, SMBLT, BASI as well as youth leaders, expedition leaders, Scouts, Guides, Boys Brigade, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award practitioners and other youth organisations.
Our course is also recognised as suitable for the coaching schemes of the BCU and RYA.
Besides all that, it’s good fun and you WILL learn
Certification, valid for three years. There is also the opportunity to undertake the Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate during this course as additional certification for the workplace. Additional costs may apply.
