Why you should choose us
as your training provider!

We understand that choosing a training provider can be a daunting process especially with an overwhelming amount of ‘leading pre-hospital’ training organisations claiming to be the best. The Medics Lodge does not advertise as the best provider because what makes a company the best? We do, however, claim to be good.

Scroll down to see 5 reasons that we believe make The Medics Lodge a ‘good’ training provider.

Competent Instructors

You wouldn’t pay for cooking lessons by someone who hasn’t actually cooked a meal so why pay for medical training delivered by inexperienced instructors? The Medics Lodge training team are all frontline HCPC Paramedics serving either with a NHS emergency ambulance service or the Armed Forces. This provides our students with subject matter experts that are equipped with extensive up-to-date clinical knowledge and pre-hospital medical experience.

Our instructors only teach what they have knowledge of and what they understand. This contributes to our students’ learning and empowers them with genuine ‘real-life’ reflection and input that inexperienced and non-medical instructors sometimes lack and can only source from a textbook.

Realistic Education

Your patient is and never will be a powerpoint slide so why are you paying for pre-hospital powerpoint courses? Powerpoint has its place and is a very useful training aid but shouldn’t make up the majority of your training experience.

We’ve all learnt CPR on resusci-anne manikins or practiced bandaging wounds on improvised polyethylene foam limbs. These ‘training aides’ provide students with minimal preparation for a real life and evidence suggests that low fidelity and unrealistic training can reduce a particular skill in real life situations.

The Medics Lodge have heavily invested, sparing no expense into world leading moulage equipment from simbodies, live casualty simulation actors and live-tissue swine products which give our students the closest to a real-life experience.

Ultimate Empowerment

We believe that sometimes less is more, and unlike many other training providers we do not have an extensive portfolio of available courses. Instead we pride ourselves on specialising in a handful of the most advanced pre-hospital medical emergency and critical care qualifications available.

By specializing in a niche selection, we can focus on the skills and services that will uniquely empower our students the most. We create effective modern medics capable of providing effective casualty care in a real life situation. Every industry evolves and so should a training provider.

We see ourselves more like the master tiler, rather than the jack of all trades

Continuous Development

Continuing professional development (CPD) is the way in which all registered medical professionals and first responders of all descriptor levels continue to learn and develop throughout their careers. It is an approved method of remaining competent and knowledgably ensuring that they’re capable of providing safe and effective patient care.

Just because you’ve passed a course doesn’t mean you wont experience skill fade and that’s why The Medics Lodge will continue to support our learners throughout their careers by providing them with regular free CPD sessions and articles. We believe that by investing in our students we’re also investing in ourselves as one day, we could be the patient in need. 

Supporting Communities

The Medics Lodge proudly contribute towards the funding for Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and their installation. As an example, with every 40 students that enrol on one of our Rescue Trauma And Casualty Care Course from our Integrated Emergency Care Programme we purchase a life-saving AED for areas of need around the community.

In addition to this we deliver numerous basic life support and how to use an external automated defibrillator to members of the community and specialist groups completely free of charge. When you train with The Medics Lodge you also help provide life-saving equipment to someone who might need it.

Realistic Training And Educational Scenarios

Your patient is and never will be a powerpoint slide so why are you paying for pre-hospital powerpoint courses? Powerpoint has its place and is a very useful training aid but shouldn’t make up the majority of your training experience. The Medics Lodge has a tried and tested system that caters to all learning needs whilst making our modules practical, engaging and innovative.

We’ve all had a CPR lesson on resusci-anne manikins or practiced bandaging wounds on improvised polyethylene foam limbs. These cheap ‘training aides’ provide students with very minimal preparation for a real life casualty and there is a wealth of evidence to suggest that low fidelity and unrealistic training can reduce a competence of a particular skill when it is required in real life situations.

The Medics Lodge have heavily invested into world leading premium simbodies training and moulage equipment, specialist casualty actors and live-tissue swine products which give our students the closest to a real-life experience and also provides a more enjoyable and educational learning experience.

Innovative, Bespoke learning and industry specialisation

We believe that sometimes less is more, and unlike many other training providers we do not have an extensive portfolio of available training courses. Instead we pride ourselves on specialising in a handful of the most advanced pre-hospital medical emergency and critical care qualifications available for the first responder in the United Kingdom.

By specializing in a very niche selection, we are able to focus on the skills and services that will uniquely empower our students the most. We help to create effective modern medics capable of providing a solution to their unique situation thus enabling them to maximize effective casualty care in a real life situation. Every industry evolves and so should a training provider. We are one of very few approved training partners of The ATACC Group and our delivery is innovative, evidence based and unique.

We see ourselves more like the master tiler, rather than the jack of all trades.
