Approximately 2600 individuals are prepared by our training and development team every year. Our courses are practical, enjoyable, challenging and delivered by a diverse faculty of highly experienced and qualified health professional instructors. All of our instructors are current in clinical practice and have global experience of dealing with acute and primary health care issues.
The training and development division of Iqarus has two fully equipped training centres. One at Montrose and one at Hereford. Both centres are fully equipped with state of the art medical training aides. The Montrose training unit has been continually delivering exceptional high quality offshore medics courses and refreshers and will start to deliver other accredited courses by the end of 2016.
Medical Courses in Aberdeen
We ensure our teams can train together in a realistic environment. The location of the unit within an energy sector training campus gives Iqarus unique access to specialised training facilities.
Here, our offshore, remote, maritime medics and medical emergency response teams have the opportunity to practice their skills and consolidate their learning in a situation that mirrors the remote working environment.
Iqarus is committed to ensuring the professional development and competency of all deployed healthcare professionals. We are confident our staff can deliver an excellent service at all times, even in specialised clinical skills that are challenging to practice.
In addition to the regular HSE medic training portfolio, we work closely with our clients to devise bespoke healthcare training, clinical governance and audit solutions that meet their specific healthcare objectives.
Medical Courses in Hereford
Our training facility in Hereford is a unique and spacious, bespoke designed and built centre with two classrooms and 8000 sq ft of training simulation rooms and scenes. We have Desert, Jungle, Woodland and Arctic environment rooms, collapsed building structures, two storey houses for rescue training, water rooms and middle eastern and European street simulations. We have a road traffic collision simulation area and also utilise gold command operations and control rooms to exercise staff whom have a responsibility to co-workers when on scene at an incident. Overhead drones and state of the art cameras and two way intercom communications allow the user to be on scene dealing with a casualty without an instructor over his/her shoulder.
To continue with dynamic training the centre has a 4D high fidelity immersive simulation room which can incorporate any environment at the customer’s request.
Embedded within the centre is the dedicated coordination management team ensuring effective and efficient tracking of students, certification requirements, audits and care throughout the training cycle and beyond. We have the capacity to deliver courses in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kenya and can also offer bespoke training to customer requirements. We have also have the ability to provide lesson packs in numerous languages and the training and development team have an international reach.
Following comprehensive selection and an accreditation programme we have issued a number of licences to quality medical education companies throughout the world. These centres deliver fully approved programmes to the same standard and use the same materials and lessons that are delivered within either Aberdeen or Hereford. A continual quality assurance plan is in place ensuring that you receive the highest standard of delivery.
