Where will I learn?

Accidents don’t happen in the classroom, so why train in one! Why not learn to deal with people involved in car accidents in our compound using real vehicles, learn about burns and how to manage them in the kitchen and practice CPR in a confined and busy office environment.

We have a range of environments to provide the most realistic training possible.

What equipment will I use?

Learn using some of the most advanced equipment available

At The Practical Training Hub, it isn’t just the venue that’s cutting edge. A selection of simulated injures, technology and advanced electronic manikins as well as actors can be utilised to create an even more practical, engaging and beneficial training session.

Resuscitation manikins can not only provide you with the opportunity to practice the lifesaving skill of CPR, however, they can also provide instant visual feedback on depth and rate of compression’s as well as how effective ventilation’s are!
