Steve Backshall trains with Prometheus!

Prometheus was delighted to renew Steve Backshall’s medical training last week on his #TECC course. NAEMT’s Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) course is renowned worldwide as it teaches EMS practitioners and other prehospital providers how to respond to and care for patients in a civilian tactical environment.

Steve said, “Every time I do this course it reminds me of how even entry-level skills could save lives. The actions a bystander takes in the first few minutes of a medical emergency are the most crucial.”


Steve was very complimentary regarding our faculty of instructors who are all top-notch, up-to-date doctors, nurses and paramedics, he said, “get training from people who do it for real!”

Our instructors immerse students in the scenarios and we find the hands-on aspect of our training courses impacts the retention of knowledge – students are empowered with confidence.

Steve says that with training, “When a crisis hits you’ll be less likely to panic, and do the basic things really well. you could well save a life.” We agree and prepare our students for any scenario they might encounter.

Tug Hartley, Training Manager Prometheus Medical said, “It was really great to see Steve again, and his enthusiasm for learning every aspect to the highest level, we felt privileged to work with him as he pushes himself to achieve the highest standards. We also invited Doctor Malcolm Russell MD to provide Steve with instruction as he was not only the founder of Prometheus, but he also works as part of UK Fire & Rescue Service International Search and Rescue Team (UKISAR) who deploy worldwide to countries suffering a humanitarian crisis.

We offer training to the absolute beginner, who can qualify for First Responder level on the Qualsafe FREC 3 course, to seasoned medical professionals who train with us for their continuous professional development (CPD), and to add new skills, like caring for patients in a tactical, remote, or austere environments on the TECC course, or ExpeMed™ which has developed a well-earned reputation for being the leading expedition medicine course in the UK.
