Remote Industry Paramedic (EMT-P)The Industry Paramedic Programme is our flagship course which is a 1200 hour university accredited programme designed specifically for the remote medic, oil and gas industry, expeditions, close protection operators and contract medics throughout the world. The course covers both city based paramedic skill sets and remote paramedic training with an emphasis on high quality prolonged field care for remote and operational environments.
ALS Paramedic is the required level of training for Remote Medics, Offshore Medics and Tier 2 medics for jobs in close protection, mining, security, oil and gas, maritime vessels and expeditions. This course provides academic training and clinical experience necessary to competently operate in these sectors. Delegates begin the course by completing Phase 1 which focuses on Anatomy, Pathophysiology, Pharmacology and intro to Cardiology. Phase 2 covers city based paramedic skills and follows the main course textbook, Nancy Caroline’s Emergency Care in the Streets with 51 online exams. Phase 3 covers advanced skills needed for Offshore Medics and Remote Paramedics working in a primary healthcare clinic. This includes ultrasound, GP skills, tropical medicine, orthopaedics, antibiotics, dive medicine, altitude medicine and RSI.
