Rescue Organisation Ireland will roll out a special CPC Training Day on Saturday 22 June at Navan Fire Station, to provide a mix of theoretical and practical road traffic collision (RTC) and trauma training. The event will be the first of many that will take place in different parts of the country throughout the year in order to allow as many personnel as possible to participate.
Rescue Organisation Ireland will offer real RTC and trauma scenarios with the aid of their highly qualified instructors from various national fire and ambulance services and other agencies during the day (8.30am-4pm).
The ROI’s CPC Training Programme has been designed to assist national fire and ambulance service personnel, members of voluntary organisations, emergency and community first responders, PHECC-registered practitioners and other healthcare professionals to obtain relevant knowledge and training in pre-hospital trauma care.
All participants will receive a minimum of six hours training on the day in addition to a CPC Certificate for their Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) portfolio, accrediting them with CPC points.
