Lazarus Training- about us.

Lazarus Training is a UK based training organisation, specialising in first aid and medical training, but you probably want to know a bit more about us.

One of the main things that makes us “different” from other first aid training organisations is our #trainforreal ethos. We believe that training should be as close to real as possible: real settings; real cases and most importantly really hands on. In a real first aid situation you don’t normally get offered four options to choose from [like in a multiple choice question paper]. You need to be able to make assessments and decisions despite the pressure you will be under. First aid training matters- it could literally be a matter of life or death.

Our experienced team of trainers, assessors and support staff are linked by their passion for practical, realistic and empowering training. We believe that we should #trainforreal meaning that training must reflect the reality of what people may actually face. You can find out more about our approach/scenarios here. With a variety of professional backgrounds, but united by our standards and commitment we aim to make your delegates confident in applying their emergency skills in the real world.

The range of courses run by Lazarus Training is wide, but covers paediatric first aid, workplace first aid, first aid for police officers, hostile environments training, automated external defibrillator, fire safety and travel health courses. Lazarus Training completed HSE approval, is a Qualsafe training centre, is a member of the Association of First Aiders and is approved by the Faculty of Pre-hospital Care, Royal College of Surgeons [Edinburgh] for its police medical training.

More detail about our courses, or about Lazarus Training as a company, can be found on this website or by contacting us on 0800 242 5210.

We are recruiting for first aid trainers

Due to recent increases in our course delivery, we are recruiting for first aid trainers to join our team.

As we deliver first aid and medical training, we are ideally looking for people with a background in pre-hospital care. We currently have fire-fighters, police officers, paramedics and former military medics in our team and this is the type of person we are really looking for.

DON’T WANT TO READ ABOUT IT?  Watch this instead.

We would like you to have teaching and training experience and ideally qualifications. If you don’t have a formal qualification, but have plenty of experience- don’t worry we can help you gain the qualifications.

We work with a wide variety of clients, from law enforcement to media to banks, so you need to be able to get on with people and reflect our ethos and outlook on making training accessible to all.

If you follow our social media, or explore this site, you will see our training is delivered all over the UK and internationally. So you must be willing to travel.

Many of our training courses are delivered by a team of trainers, so you won’t be out on the road by yourself all the time and the ability to work as part of a team is essential.

We are looking for full time trainers, but we also have part time posts and this post is open to a job share.

To find out more, such as the full job description, salary etc, contact elaine@lazarustraining.co.uk- she’s really friendly and will be able to answer any questions about the fact that we are recruiting for first aid trainers. If you are interested send her your CV, bearing in mind the requirements above.

We have a number of recruitment days scheduled for late August so get in touch to start the conversation.

We look forward to hearing from you and are excited about getting new people to join our great team.

You can find out more about us as a company on this site, or over on LinkedIn.

First Aid training in India

According to the World Health Organisation [WHO] India has a road traffic mortality of 16.6 per 100,000 people, placing it higher than Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. With 11% of deaths in India being the result of injuries, there is a clear need for first aid training in India.

Safety training for staff of the UNODC field offices

With a high risk profile it might be time to consider safety training for staff of the UNODC field offices. Specifically face to face training covering topics such as first aid and medical care, alongside personal safety training.

Lazarus Training provides a wide range of first aid and safety training courses and is registered as a supplier on the United Nations General Marketplace [UNGM].

With a global presence via its field offices, UNODC staff are exposed to a wide range of risks, from those posed by the location to those posed by the work that you do. Road traffic collisions [RTC] can occur anywhere in the world, in Austria the rate of deaths due to RTCs is 5.4 per 100,000 people. In Thailand it is 36.2, Kenya 29.1, Senegal 27.2 and Tanzania 32.9.

In Afghanistan 18% of deaths are due to injury, in Colombia it is 17% and Tanzania 11%. These figures are for the general population, it doesn’t allow for the risk profile of staff from UNODC who are working to improve lives, by combating organised crime, trafficking, corruption and terrorism.

Experienced in working with large organisations and multinationals, Lazarus Training has a range of first aid, medical and safety training courses which would fit the need for safety training for staff of the UNODC field offices.

We have worked in many countries including: Afghanistan; Bosnia; Egypt; Ethiopia; Georgia; Kenya; Kyrgyzstan; Nigeria; Pakistan; Russia, Senegal; South Africa and Thailand.

Our training courses are designed for each learning group so that we can tailor the courses around localised needs, whilst still delivering international guidelines to a high standard across multiple locations.

Our courses work in a modular format and last from a few hours up to five days dependant on the finalised learning outcomes/content.

Most of our training courses feature scenarios, role playing events where the delegates can practice in a safe learning environment, but at the same time getting as close to real as possible. We summarise this in our #trainforreal ethos- you can read more about this here.

As you would expect from a training organisations with ISO 9001:2015 quality is at the heart of all we do. This is reflected in the planning that goes into our training events. We will share course timetables, scheme of work, sample lesson plans, scenario plans and assessment plans before the training.

You can find out more about our general training by following the links below:

But remember, each course is designed specifically for each learning group/client.

Hostile environments training in Uganda

Many journalists find themselves experiencing threats and difficulties whilst working in Uganda. One part of the strategy to protect them might be Hostile Environments Training in Uganda itself.

There is a high risk to people working in Uganda, from more mundane problems. According to the World Health Organisation [WHO] Uganda has a road traffic mortality of 27.4 per 100,000 people, placing it higher than Egypt, Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa. With 12% of deaths in Uganda being the result of injuries, there is a clear need for first aid training in Uganda. First Aid training typically forms about 50% of our hostile environments training in Uganda.

Hostile Environments Awareness Training in Asia

Working within the briefing from the client, Lazarus Training was able to deploy to provide hostile environments awareness training in Asia within a couple of weeks of the training request hitting our office.  The end result was that we deployed members of our team to Malaysia at short notice to deliver a combined personal safety and first aid course for people expecting to work in hostile environments.

The training course was planned and delivered in under two weeks turnaround. The training was delivered in English to a multinational audience with our training team bringing all necessary resources for the training, allowing for it to be delivered quickly and at the client’s convenience and at their venue, reducing costs.

Whilst the reaction time for this course was quick, that doesn’t mean that any of Lazarus Training’s trademark attention to planning was missed, with a fully planned scheme of work and associated materials being available to the client before we left the UK.

Topics covered included: dealing with aggression; working in crowds; vehicle safety; dealing with vehicle checkpoints; ballistics awareness; emergency first aid including catastrophic bleeding; personal resilience and planning.

As always the training was adapted to reflect a number of factors: the entry level knowledge and experience of the participants; the concerns of the participants; local developments and recent events in the region.

In this case, the workshop was delivered as part of a wider training session which required us to ensure a smooth “hand over” of the participants to the second training provider, who was running different training.

If you would like to know more about the training services provided by Lazarus Training, you could explore this website more, or you could call us on + 44 800 2425210 or email us on info[at]lazarustraining.co.uk.

You can find some general course information on these pages, but please remember we tailor all our training courses for each client.

We can also be found on all the usual social media channels, but this only covers part of our services.

Want to know more about the new FPOS course?

First Person on Scene training is popular and has been running for years,  but the changes in 2017 to a level 4 qualification seem to have caused some confusion.

First Person on Scene [level 4] (was First Person On Scene Intermediate) training is typically a five day course aimed at those likely to be providing the initial care to a person injured or taken ill. The FPOS course is most relevant for people who are likely to be unable to call for professional medical back up, or that help will arrive in more than 20 minutes.

This is now a Level 4 qualification after the changes to the course duration, content [only small changes] and the assessment requirements.

Next FPOS I “Open” course dates in Essex:

 12th to 16th March 2018 [inclusive]

Call 0800 242 5210 to book.

Originally designed for community first responders working with the NHS, this course has become increasingly popular as an alternative to the traditional workplace first aid courses.

The course is highly practical, focusing on building a confident approach to casualty management through scenario work involving casualty simulation.

With this amount of content to be covered, you will appreciate that the training days are long and full on. We also require delegates to have previously completed first aid training and to have completed some pre-reading of the course manual prior to the course. The course includes the necessary lessons to build knowledge but has a high percentage of practical sessions, skills stations and most importantly casualty scenario work. This scenario work can be both physically and mentally challenging, but very rewarding. Contact our training office via info@lazarustraining.co.uk or on 0800 242 5210 to discuss any specific needs/questions.

Contents of an Individual First Aid Kit – aid worker version

When we run our medical training courses we are often asked “what should the contents of an individual first aid kit aid worker ‘s seem to ask this question a lot!

We understand the pressures we are all under when it comes to equipment. Budgets and then the practicalities of carrying the stuff around, on and off planes and across borders often informs our decisions on the contents of an individual first aid aid worker version.

So where do we begin? Something to carry it in I guess. You can buy all sorts of different first aid kit bags, but we have some favourites [pictured]  but it needs to be tough enough for your life and either needs to blatantly a first aid kit, or taking it in the opposite direct look like a camera bag or similar.

Contents of an individual first aid kit Aid Worker

So what goes in? We believe it’s best when an item has more than one use, but understand that sometimes this isn’t possible. For some of our media clients we even went as far as limiting the individualfirst aid kit to five items. We called it our desert island first aid kit [you need to be of a certain age to get that reference!], you might find some [poor quality] YouTube videos on our channel on this topic.

We have decided that we can squeeze in a few extra items for our aid work first aid kit, so here’s the headlines:

contents of an individual first aid kit aid workerTourniquet [our kits have a CAT-Combat Application Tourniquet]

Celox Gauze

Gauze [for wound packing]

Nasopharyngeal airway[s]

Nightingale Dressing

Olaes Dressing

Tuff cut shears

Sharpie Pen

SAM Splint

Tri-angular bandage

Space blanket [foil type]

Small role of gaffer tape/gorilla tape

There is normally some vinyl gloves, but the kit I picked up for this article was missing those, but that’s about it.

Now obviously we could add stuff, take some away, but most of the items here are easy to use [get some training to make sure you can use under pressure] and don’t have expiry dates, or they are long or it doesn’t really matter- I mean can a bandage expire?

So what’s it all for? If you have done a first aid or hostile environments courses [like our ones here] then it should all make sense, but hopefully the video below will make some sense of what the items are and why we have chosen them.

Recently when we ran some training for aid workers in Senegal we hit the problem that there was no budget to buy first aid kits, so we had to put out thinking caps on. If you would like to know what improvised and/or low cost first aid equipment we came up with drop me a line: alistair[at]lazarustraining.co.uk

We hope to post some more video content soon, for example a first aid kit on a budget.
