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.
Meningitis is a subject that we cover on our paediatric first aid courses, but such is the level of concern we are often asked for extra information or recommended avenues of support. In April 2013 the Meningitis Trust and Meningitis UK merged to form one larger and stronger organisation to further their shared aims. For those seeking information on Meningitis this means a single point of access to a wealth of information. So when asked for additional information on Meningitis or how to access help and support we don’t hesitate to recommend the Meningitis Trust website or point people towards its facebook page.
What is asthma?
What causes asthma?
What can trigger an asthma attack?
Why can’t I take tablets to treat asthma?
We recommend the website of Asthma UK as a great resource to answer these and other questions. On our first aid courses, particularly our paediatric first aid courses we are often asked about asthma and have found the Asthma UK website to be a great, easily accessible resource. It is frequently updated, for example it currently has information about fasting and asthma due to Ramadan.
Asthma UK is the UK’s leading asthma charity, and with approximately 5 million people in the UK having asthma, it is a busy organisation.
Most of our first aid training courses are run at the clients’ premises, but we do also run what we call “open courses”. We host these courses and then you can book onto it individually or with your friends and colleagues. We have a number of training venues, our popular paediatric first aid courses are often run at Rayleigh at weekends.
The same great training as always, but now with the further confirmation that our paediatric first aid training has been audited and approved by Southend Borough Council as being appropriate paediatric first aid training.
