This new and exciting modular course has been specifically designed by Health Care Professionals for individuals aspiring to or currently working within an independent Pre-Hospital Care environment where as part of their role would be required to provide Higher tier levels of emergency care and assessment to patients on a regular basis.

As of  2015 The IHCD De-Regulated their NHS Ambulance Technician accreditation Leaving a gap in skills within the emergency ambulance sector. routes available for NHS ambulances now more than often have only 2 routes. Ether to qualify as a paramedic usually 3 years full time study or to become an assistant.

This course has been designed to bridge the gap left between the ECA and Paramedic role encompassing all of the Ambulance Technician knowledge including new additions of cutting edge trauma and critical care practice thus providing higher levels of skill to crews not staffed by a paramedic.
