ERT TrainingWhat's the training for?How big can a class be?Training topics
We offer the following 2-day Emergency Response Team - ERT - Training based on our CIMAT (Critical Incident Management & Awareness Training) program.

First, REMEMBER “Run-Hide-Tell”. If the situation dictates that an ERT can respond, this training could save more lives. Nationally, 40% of deaths in the UK are attributed to catastrophic bleeding.

CIMAT covers the following elements:

  • Security Awareness Training (foundational to the elements below
  • Terrorist Awareness Training
  • Hostage Awareness Training

  • In conjunction with Emergency Response Team – ERT – Training, we provide additional training in:
  • Catastrophic Injuries Training
  • Workplace violence (Conflict Management/Resolution)
  • Physical intervention (last resort option)
  • Our Emergency Response Team - ERT - Training program is a major product of our CIMAT program and is directed at individuals within organisations who are part of an Emergency Response Team (ERT), who would generally consist of:

  • Security personnel
  • Facilities staff
  • Fire Marshals
  • First Aiders
  • Members of the Crisis Management Team.
    ERT is also suitable for general employees who are not part of an ERT but enables them to support and or react effectively and confidently to a critical incident.
  • Training in dealing with Catastrophic injuries (Aftermath of attack) where the attack would/could include: (or a multiple of all)

  • Knife Attack
  • Active Shooter
  • IED (Bomb blast injuries – amputations, burns, catastrophic bleeding etc)
  • PBIED (Person-Borne Improvised Explosive Device)
  • Aggressive Vehicle As Weapon (AVAW)
  • Our Catastrophic Injuries Training will cater for a maximum of 3 cohorts over a two-day intensive program, allowing a maximum of 36 learners.

    It is important that learners have a current First Aid qualification as a pre-requisite to undertaking the program and that they should still have good knowledge. The importance of basic first aid is based on the advanced levels of learning involved in our course.

    We offer pre-ERT course refreshers for those that need to “pep-up” their skills and we also offer First Aid at Work (FAW 3-day), Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW 1-day) for those who have no basic first aid training
    Catastrophic Injury training includes:
    FAW level

  • Advanced pre-hospital care

  • All the above will be delivered over two days, day 2 culminating in live scenarios with extremely realistic casualties displaying theatrical/cinematic wounds (critical amputations, bleeding and burns) which the learners will have to deal with and effectively and efficiently manage. Feedback will be given to all learners and clients.
    Catastrophic Bleeding
    C- Catastrophic Bleeding

    Before anything, if your casualty has had "Catastrophic Bleeding" it must must be dealt with first.
    A- Airway

    Next it is important to open the casualty's Airway, gently tilt their head right back
    B- Breathing

    Look, listen, feel for "normal" breathing 10 seconds. You should get at least 2 breaths
    C- Circulation

    Not breathing? You will need to get blood circulating to the brain and vital organs - CPR
