Professional Responder Courses 

Our courses are designed to help increase the knowledge of our Professional Responders no matter what their chosen field. Along with ensuring that the Professional Responder is proficient at basic life saving skills we add an important base of human physiology, pharmacology, additional assessments and skills required to complete their job. As our First Responders work in a multitude of areas including but not limited to the Marine Environment, Fire Services and Emergency Response Teams these courses are often modified to meet the learners’ primary field of work.
