The premier course in NZ for prehospital medicine. Ready to level up?
This course is not for the faint hearted. PracMed's PHEC course is designed to equip students with advanced skills to help keep casualties alive in a prehospital setting.
With a 4 day intensive face-to-face course and self-directed learning, students will be put through their paces.
We'll build you up, teaching you the why, the when and the how, giving you all the skills to effectively plan, manage and execute tasks where you are responsible for others.
This course will cover minor to major wound profiles medical emergencies and pre- and post- incident planning and management.
This course includes online pre- and post-course work. You will need access to a computer/phone with internet to be able to complete these components.
To run this as a on-site private course, we require a training space with adequate room for practical activities. At any stage, half of the group will be working on partners lying on the ground - we need ample space for them to work safely. As it is quite practical, the room needs to be well ventilated.
We'll need two tables, enough chairs for the participants and space for the projector to display. We're happy to use your AV set up if you have one.
Please contact us to discuss the suitability of your venue as there are several complex scenarios included in this course.
Unit Standards 6402, 6401 and 6400 are a prerequisite for 29321.
6400 is able to be added in to this course with additional pre- and post- course work.
