Lazarus Training is about to hit the airwaves

Lazarus Training is about to hit the airwaves of South Essex when our range of songs is played on Essex Radio later this month.

Our training courses are well known for the #trainforreal scenarios and the great background of our training team, but you might of noticed the amount of music that features in our training courses and scenarios.

We are always searching for the “right” tune to play in the background, or help with the pacing of CPR etc, but we also turned it into a bit of fun for our training team and delegates.

Lazarus Training is about to hit the airwaves

We have supplied our choice of twenty songs, all somehow related to our first aid or fire safety training, see if you can guess who came up with each one!

You might have noticed our #musicmonday on our facebook page, listing many of our favourites.

Teenaider first aid training

Teenaider first aid training is coming back to Essex this school holiday. Call 0800 242 5210 to book.

Teenaider first aid training is aimed at teenagers and other young people who may find themselves providing emergency medical care without immediate adult supervision. As teenagers discover their independence they might find themselves being the “grown up” in a medical emergency- perhaps a friends has had an accident, or a parent or carer has been taken ill, then it would be down to the teenager to summon help and potentially provide basic life saving help. Our Teenaider courses are designed to provide the skills and confidence that might be needed to help in these types of situations.

As with all the first aid training provided by Lazarus Training we believe training must be practical and aimed at the real life situations the delegates might face, two principles we sum up as #trainforreal and “first aid training is a contact sport”. On this course your teenager will receive instruction in:

Scene safety

Calling for emergency help

Casualty assessment


Airway management including choking and vomiting

Control of bleeding

All training is conducted in a life like manner and is designed to build the confidence of the teenager and ensure the principles are firmly in mind by the end of the course.

What is the Teenaider course like?

The main session is 3 hours long, with additional 3 hour sessions available for those that wish to really explore the topic and their skills and reactions. The training is currently run at our Leigh on Sea venue, but we can travel to groups such as schools, scouts etc.

The training is conducted by qualified instructors, most with a background in the emergency services. Training involves some physical activity such as laying on the floor and clothing may get slightly dirty. For full details of what should be worn, ask our office team for our “You want to be a Teenaider” leaflet.

Our Teenaider first aid training is normally run during school holidays, but can also be arranged for weekends on request.

To book the course, or to find out more call us on 0800 242 5210 or email us via info@lazarustraining.co.uk
