As a Medical Technician there is no current awarding body or protected title. There are various EMT courses available throughout the UK and many don’t offer the credibility, in-depth clinical knowledge and skills that is required of such a role. We have developed an comprehensive and robust Pre Hospital Medical Technician programme that is fit for purpose and will enable the clinician to safely practice and ensure they deliver excellent clinical care to their patients.
We have developed this programme with the patient as our main focus, from the medical emergency to the major trauma victim. This course offers a diverse scope of practice that will appeal to medics working in the major industry and chemical sites, medical support centres and teams, remote and hostile medics as well as the private ambulance technician and NHS services.
We are committed to providing quality educational programmes utilising the latest evidence based practice.
