Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support Course (PHTLS) by Exmed UK Ltd

Before attending the course, I knew of Exmed' reputation as a quality training provider, however, within this industry I have found that many people critiquing courses don't have relevant experiences to back up their reviews, so I don't always lend great credence to them. Having completed numerous medical courses throughout my career, at many levels, from FAAW to University level, and with various providers including civilian companies and military trainers, I feel that I am in a good position to make comment.

The knowledge of the instructors was excellent, and there were several instructors used over the 2 day course. Both days were long and packed with lessons and assessments, it was hard going to say the least. The practical exercises utilised different scenarios and environments, using dummy and live casualties, and vehicle simulated accidents. The venue is ideal, with purpose built training environments including desert and jungle rooms.

The course is very much an assessment rather than a teaching course in my opinion, the calibre of participants can be daunting, consisting mainly of Doctors and Paramedics, with a few Nurses and Off Shore Medics. A high standard of medical knowledge and experience is required to pass the course.

Overall I found the course very enjoyable and would highly recommend Exmed as a training provider.
