About Us

International Approval & Accreditation

When lives are at risk, only correct training ensures correct action; getting it wrong is not an option. Your Emergency Medical crews, responders and rescue personnel expect you to get the choice of training provider right first time. Effective emergency medical services education and training is not a 'tick-box' exercise, and this is not a game.

Your training provider must reflect the integrity of your own organisation and your own professionalism. It must provide national qualifications and training relevant to your needs, be flexible to meet your operational requirements, and give you value for money, every time.

With 29 years’ world-wide experience, we remain the largest provider of pre-hospital medical response development training outside the NHS, serving a wide range of UK and international independent organisations and public sector bodies.
