The Clinical Team Mentors (Paramedics) are undertaking the NAEMT-certified PHTLS course (Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support) which is recognized around the world as the leading continuing education program for pre-hospital emergency trauma care. The WMAS Clinical Mentors are benefiting from completing their 2-day PHTLS training at our 11-acre training centre in Herefordshire, which provides the ideal location for practical, immersive training. Our instructors are always clinically current, and use their knowledge and experience of blended classroom-based learning along with practical, realistic pre-hospital scenarios utilising hyper-realistic SIMBODIES mannequins and casualty simulation.

The feedback we have received includes the following:

  • “Very informative, well run, great scenarios. Thank you to all the instructors for sharing their knowledge, skills and experience to enhance the learning.” 
  • “The instructors made us feel we were their equals even though they knew so much about everything. They delivered information perfectly and I now feel I have gained so much knowledge and confidence. “
  • “The course was interesting and challenging; all aspects of learning can be applied to my day-to-day work as a paramedic.”
  • “Made me realise that my knowledge of trauma needs improving which the course has done.” 
  • “This has been by far the best CPD course I have been on. “

Our instructors have been extremely impressed with all the WMAS students showing great enthusiasm, professionalism and overall engagement with the training.

The NAEMT Certified PHTLS course is delivered over 2 days, and we limit the class size to a maximum of 12 learners, to 2 instructors.

WMAS are the first Trust in the country to have a paramedic on every vehicle and respond to around 4,000 ‘999’ calls each day. We are delighted and proud to be able to support this service and contribute to frontline Paramedics improving the quality of pre-hospital trauma care through delivery of our PHTLS courses to WMAS Clinical Mentors.
