Emergency or First Responders have been proven to have the biggest impact on survivability for those injured or acutely ill in remote locations and should be able to provide initial support and co-ordination of evacuation to further medical support.
The CEER Intermediate course aims to provide those traveling and working overseas in challenging and often hazardous parts of the world with the appropriate knowledge and skills to provide the immediate response to casualties. Aimed at areas of the world where there is either a delayed, unskilled or non-existent emergency ambulance service.
The course aims to provide the essential underpinning knowledge and skills with an emphasis of understanding the “why” as well as the “how”, so that when circumstances occur outside of the norm CEER trained personnel can adapt for the benefit of their injured colleagues.
