IEC Instructor

IEC Advanced

The IEC (Immediate Emergency Care) Instructor course is the most advanced, up to date trauma course currently available to non-health care professionals in the UK.

It covers all the skills proposed by the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care and the Chief Fire Officers Association (National Fire & Rescue Trauma Conference, 2011).Designed in conjunction with Fire & Rescue specialists, police, military and NHS professionals, it is delivered by instructors who work at the cutting edge of pre and in-hospital care.

The aim of the course is to reduce preventable pre-hospital deaths by training candidates to identify and treat life-threatening emergencies and prepare casualties for rapid evacuation to hospital. Originally tailored for Fire & Rescue Services, where it is widely adopted, it is ideal for any emergency services and law enforcement or security personnel, including those working in remote areas. With specific modules for burns, suspension trauma and crush injuries, we can also add further modules including blast and ballistic injury, and all the requirements of the National Police Firearms Training Curriculum D.13 modules or whatever may be required to suit you and your environment or workplace.

There is also the option of our ‘train the trainer’ bolt-on, so you can cascade the training within your organisation under a Trauma Resus licence, with continued support and clinical governance.

The IEC course is equivalent to PHEM (Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine) Level D, as defined by the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care for providers. Students also have the option to receive a First Aid at Work certificate, subject to an extra fee.

The award of the IEC certificate indicates that you have successully completed the course and completed the assessments but does not constitute a licence to practise, without the associated Clinical Governance.

Without Clinical Governance, employers themselves are responsible for establishing that their staff have the capabilities requisite to their setting - this is essential in the interests of patient health and safety. Accordingly, they must not rely to any extent on the holding by an individual of a Certificate of Qualification from Trauma Resus as lessening their responsibility in that aspect.
