Highlights from the May 2024 Course

Experienced Instructors

Our students benefitted greatly from instructors who are not only knowledgeable but also actively practising in the field. One student noted:

“The instructors had a good subject knowledge based on experience both previous and current. I always feel this is so valuable to have staff that know and do, rather than just teach.”

We appreciate this feedback as we strive to provide the most current and relevant training possible.

Engaging Lectures and Practical Sessions

We believe in immersive learning to enhance retention. Our students particularly enjoyed the blend of classroom and outdoor sessions. One student shared:

“Expedition medicine by its nature is an outdoor activity and it was great when we could to hold sessions outside, as it added to the realism. I enjoyed the split between classroom and practical as this was engaging!”

This hands-on approach and interactive teaching made the course both educational and enjoyable.

Comprehensive Course Content

Our holistic approach covers all essential aspects of expedition medicine. One student highlighted the importance of addressing mental attitude:

“Great to see this as part of the course, and very professionally mature, to see this included, as is so often overlooked. I feel this is a critical aspect as poor mental attitude from one individual can adversely impact the entire team.”

Seamless Experience from Start to Finish

Easy Onboarding

We aim to make the booking process smooth and straightforward. One student commented:

“The info on the portal was clear and concise, and when I contacted the Training Team, they provided everything I needed, including making arrangements for accommodation.”

Comfortable Accommodation

We offer simple, B&B-style accommodation that our students find satisfactory. As one student described:

“Clean, comfortable, functional, and affordable.”

Delicious Lunches

Our lunches receive consistent praise for their variety and quality. One student noted:

“Nice variety, catering to all types of diet. I particularly noticed the small things, like homemade coleslaw, freshly baked croissants, and pain chocolate. Nice touch.”
