More and more employers now need to provide for their staff working in challenging, remote or hostile environments around the world. Whether travelling into harsh environments or being remote from medical care, the need to prepare employees to provide simple medical care in challenging environments is increasing. Lazarus Training has now opened up its International Trauma Course to the wider market to meet this need.

Originally developed for government staff travelling into high risk environments often remote from medical facilities, this course was written by military medical personnel with experience in providing trauma and general medical care in hostile environments. The course has been recently audited and found to exceed the medical elements of the UK Government SAFE training courses.

Updated and adapted this course is now available to all.

The International Trauma Course is designed to provide a high level of confidence in the application of potentially life saving skills, in challenging or hostile environments. It is available in a two or three day version dependant on exact course content.
