Emergency First Aid Training, 25th April at Sherborne, Dorset

This is a one day course, focused on those immediate workplace first aid issues that arise.  Whatever your work environment, the common factor is you will be working alongside others who may have urgent need of first aid, be that the result of a work-related activity or suffer an unrelated condition while at work.  It may be that urgent help is needed (unconscious/not breathing/choking casualty) or it may be you need to stabilise a casualty’s condition before seeking more assistance (burns/external bleeding).   This course provides you with the information to quickly and safely act.  Remember, the national target for an ambulance’s attendance in a life-threatening condition is 8 minutes.  In the southwest area that target is met in 80% of cases.  Your casualty may need to rely on you before paramedic help can get to them.  Your trainer will be Kirsty Caswell.  Kirsty brings strong skills and considerable experience from her NHS nurse specialist role.  Kirsty is an experienced trainer and is looking forward to helping you refresh, extend or commence your first aid learning.

Outdoor Emergency First Aid

At Evince we believe in making training relevant.  First Aid is learnt best when it is made bespoke.  And the context in which training takes place can reinforce learning.  Outdoor sports takes place in environments where applying first aid can be difficult.  Cold weather, bulky clothing, working far from assistance, can make successful first aid difficult.  At Evince we can help.  We will provide specific course material to match the hazards and risks in your sports or activity field.  We will help you practice in conditions to replicate likely scenarios you need to be prepared for.  We will expose the group to a full scale emergency exercise to test newly learned skills.  And to help you prepare for the reality of serious injury that goes along with the additional risks that outdoor sports and other activities carries, we will add a little blood to our staff role players to make training realistic and challenging.

Our course takes place over an action-packed two days.  It will be hard work but thoroughly worth it.  While we are looking at first aid topics we will also consider leadership/teamworking in an emergency situation and prevention planning.  But don’t just take our word for how good our outdoor first aid training is, read a testimonial from our last Outdoor Emergency First Aid course:

I have attended and received a great deal of first aid training through either work or my interest in outdoor pursuits. I can honestly say that the training delivered Richard, Diane and Nic from Evince was the best ever. Firstly, all instructors were hugely knowledgeable as demonstrated in their delivery, real life examples and how they answered our questions. Secondly, they brought with them a huge amount of training kit that we could practice with. There was absolutely no danger of not getting the chance to practice with a piece of kit, right down to (training) EpiPens and military bandages. We were also able to practice inserting an OP airway. Finally, the ratio of instructors to students was excellent meaning we never had to wait for the individual attention of one of the trainers. I left the course feeling very confident that if I was called to apply any of the techniques learnt I would be able to do so effectively.  Gareth B

Contact us today to discuss your group’s specific needs.  We can arrange training to meet your needs and plan the environment for that training.  Do you need to include a formal first aid qualification?  If so we can adjust the course programme to prepare you for the exam so that you ca gain a recognised qualification.  If you engage in activities in hazardous environments let appropriate first aid training act as an insurance policy so that you can enjoy your leisure time with confidence.

Remember, the higher the risk in your sport or outdoor activity the greater the chance that you will be exposed to an emergency that may prove life threatening or life changing for the casualty.  If it hasn’t happened yet, let us help you be prepared in case your luck runs out.

Our first Course took place in January 2017 at Bournemouth. It was, if we say so ourselves, a very successful course which significantly extended understanding for everyone taking part.  Lead tutors for this training are all registered and active front line Paramedics.  Lead Tutors are assisted by Evince Trainng co-trainers who are all experienced and qualified advanced first aiders.

We deliver this training over a four-day period (with some pre read exercises), you may find some providers offer this qualification over 3 days, however we strongly believe this does not give sufficient time for delegates to practice and fully absorb the practical skills we will provide.
