Major Incident Management Training

Major Incident Management Training - 1 Day

The 1 day ( approx. 6 hour) Major Incident Management training course has been developed in partnership with a practicing paramedic from Scottish Ambulance’s Services Special Operations Response Team.

Major incident training will describe the kinds of actions staff should be considering now, before in incident happens. It also includes basic first aid training for trauma incidents and our trainers will run a triage scenario in afternoon of the course to skill the staff team in trauma first aid and major incident management. The debriefing of this simulated incident will highlight vital lessons for the safety of your staff in the event of a real incident.

Vitally this package also includes a pre-course site visit, usually the day before your course, to discuss your specific needs for the training and develop or review your emergency plans for the business premises and its operations.
