Top standard medical knowledge is at the heart of each of the courses offered by Meditec Training and each delegate will leave the course feeling satisfied, with full competence and confidence with the new skills they have learnt. Each course member will be taught life-saving skills and will be able to put these into practice in front of the expert as many times as they need until they feel comfortable with the new skills they have acquired.
At Meditec Training we are passionate about first aid training, so much so that we believe it is never too early to start learning first aid, a valuable life skill. That is why we are so very proud to offer our ‘Meditec Mini Lifesavers’ course. We are hugely committed to your local community in ensuring children receive a quality, fun, interactive and accessible first aid training course.
This course has been designed personally by Meditec Training’s founder Mr. Andy Memory BSc (Hons) who worked closely with Mr. Dale Burr, Head Teacher at Oakhurst Community School in designing and delivering this innovate and unique course for children aged 5-12 years old. The Meditec Mini Lifesavers course offers a fun educational approach to first aid.
All of our ‘Meditec Mini lifesavers’ training materials promote the importance of life and helping others in need. This course encourages leadership skills, installs confidence, aids the development of social skills and promotes self esteem.
Meditec Training will provide a full training consultation for schools, youth groups, scout, guides and beaver groups and after school clubs to look at course delivery and to tailor make a syllabus if required. First aid can be incorporated into many areas of the Key Stage curriculum, particularly key stage 2, 3 and 4.
We welcome and encourage all children from 6-12 years old to become a Meditec Mini Lifesaver.
