4 day Advanced Course

For those working far from medical care or in extreme environments then this is the course for you.  We have taught production companies, school groups, expedition leaders and for the Royal Geographical Society.

This course includes training in invasive techniques such as intramuscular injections, stapling and suturing wounds and intravenous fluids. We also cover more in-depth knowledge of medical illness, trauma scenarios and medical kit content.

Completion of an Endeavour course will give you access to the Prescription Only Medications (POMs) taught on the course for the two year duration of your certificate.
