Where will I learn?

Learn in a unique environment with advanced equipment

Accidents don’t happen in the classroom, so why train in one! Why not learn to deal with people involved in car accidents in our compound using real vehicles, learn about burns and how to manage them in the kitchen and practice CPR in a confined and busy office environment. We have a range of environments to provide the most realistic training possible.

We don’t just use a realistic training environment, we also use a variety of simulated injures and advanced manikins which not only allow you to practice the lifesaving skill of CPR, but which also provide instant visual feedback on depth and rate of compression’s as well as how effective ventilation’s are!
