This is a comprehensive advanced first aid training programme that is offered by AIS training to those working in remote or offshore environments such as the Renewable Energy Industry. In addition to key lifesaving skills and response to common emergencies and minor medical complaints, it also deals with advanced airway management, using various airway adjuncts. The delegates will also cover the use of bag, valve and mask equipment with the addition of oxygen in resuscitation scenarios.

The length of the programme allows for a thorough analysis of emergency situations in which personnel may be involved. Delegates are given ample opportunity to practice the wide range of skills taught. The delegate is also provided with up to date knowledge to enable the skills to be properly applied. The training is underpinned with an emphasis on scenario based training such as a turbine tower, at height and in areas of restricted movement.

On successful completion on the course delegates will;

  • Have gained the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively administer advanced first aid techniques.
  • Have the ability to support a physical or virtual paramedic or doctor.
