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.

Travel health courses

Our training team includes medics with years of experience of providing medical care in challenging environments, so it was obvious that we would start running training courses for teams travelling in remote environments. After years of running these courses for various agencies and organisations, we are now pleased to announce that we can provide this training to a wider sector such as charities.

Watch this area of our website: http://www.lazarustraining.co.uk/travel-health-and-medicine/ for detail of our courses as they are made available.
