Emergency Care Courses 

Emergency Medical Technician Course

The EMT course is taught over seven modules, each one amounting to 40-50 hours of study divided between self-directed learning and face-to-face teaching. The course provides all of the knowledge and skills necessary to work competently as a professional EMT.

Each module covers a different aspect of EMT practice such as anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology and patient assessment, emergency care and resuscitation, trauma and minor injuries, paediatrics and obstetric care and ambulance operations.

Face-to-face teaching includes didactic lecture-style presentations and tutorials as well as workshops to develop practical skills and scenario-based teaching to put knowledge and skills into practice.

Course instructors include doctors, paramedics and advanced practitioners in pre-hospital and emergency care. All of the course faculty are currently practicing and hold advanced qualifications in pre-hospital medicine.

The course culminates with a consolidation and assessment phase including a final written examination and practical assessments covering all of the key knowledge and skills taught and practiced on the course.

Successful completion of the course leads to the award of the Remote Medic UK EMT Certificate as well as additional emergency care certifications.

Emergency Response and Public First Aid

Workplace first aid courses, as their title suggests, are intended to cover the provision of first aid in the workplace and to meet the legal requirements for training where risk assessment suggests that employers should have trained first aiders available in the workplace.

Such courses are neither prerequisite nor sufficient for the provision of first aid to members of the public and will not in themselves meet the needs of first aiders working in public places.

This course, delivered over two or three days depending on the needs of the client and prior training, is designed to prepare candidates with the skills and abilities necessary for the provision of first aid in public places. The course includes training and certification in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) as well as basic airway adjuncts, arterial tourniquets to stop major bleeding and administration of medical gases (oxygen and Entonox).

PHEM Level 2

Successful completion of this course will qualify participants for Membership of the Faculty of Pre-hospital Care of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) at Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) Level 2.*

Pre-hospital Trauma Courses

Our pre-hospital trauma courses teach and practice skills that are essential to all first responders and emergency medical personnel. Two levels are available, BTACC and RTACC, and both are accreditted by the Faculty of Anaesthesia, Trauma and Critical Care.

Basic Trauma and Casualty Care (BTACC)

BTACC is a two-day course that provides entry level pre-hospital trauma training suitable both for those with prior emergency medical training and those without. The syllabus is designed to enable candidates to effectively identify and manage time-critical and life-threatening injuries and medical emergencies. The course emphasises simple and easily achievable life-saving interventions which can be performed at the scene of any incident prior to the arrival of emergency medical services.

Rescue Trauma and Casualty Care (RTACC)

The RTACC course is aimed at front-line emergency services and rescue personnel who may have to deal with life-threatening emergencies (e.g. paramedics, firefighters, police officers, coastguard and mountain rescue teams) as well as first-responders in other industries such as security and construction. The syllabus includes all topics covered by the BTACC course with additional specialist content of specific relevance to the student group.

PHEM Level 3

Successful completion of the BTACC or RTACC course will qualify participants for Membership of the Faculty of Pre-hospital Care of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) at Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) Level 3.*

Cardiac Care for Ambulance Clinicians

Suspected cardiac conditions such as chest pain and arrhythmias are among the most common calls attended by ambulance clinicians. Recognition and management of these conditions can be difficult in the out-of-hospital setting and many ambulance professionals lack confidence when it comes to dealing with cardiac emergencies.

This one-day course uses a problem-based approach to review commonly encountered and less common but potentially serious cardiac problems. The content will build on initial EMT and paramedic training to enhance knowledge, skills and competence in the management of cardiac emergencies.

Immediate Life Support (RCUK)

The Immediate Life Support (ILS) course teaches a structured approach to the initial management of medical emergencies, collapse and cardiac arrest. Course content includes patient assessment, airway management and defibrillation (AED or manual).

The course is approved by the Resuscitation Council of the United Kingdom (RCUK) and is appropriate for healthcare professionals and others who may have to attend to an adult patient with a sudden medical emergency or collapse.
