This section is aimed at medical professionals that hold at least a Basic Ambulance Certificate and currently registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).
The course is conducted over eight days. Applicants must be in possession of a valid Basic TEMS certificate. The Advance course will concentrate more on rural type movement and survival; most of the topics in the basic course would be looked at but in a lot more detail. Here we look at the more practical aspects of TEMS.
A minimum of 24 students is required.
The course is structured to equip the emergency care provider with the knowledge, skills and insight to work safely in a high-risk, high-threat environment, something that we face regularly in South Africa.
Who are our lectures?
We are privileged to have some of South Africans best subject specialists presenting the lectures, among which are ex-Special Force Operations (Military), ex-Special Task Force (SAPS) members, and even a veterinarian specialists in emergency veterinarian care and anesthesiology with a deep knowledge of managing K9 emergencies.
Our lectures are committed to give you their best, and to enable you to learn and experience the ultimate in TACTICAL EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE.
And the benefits?
With TEMS there are medical professionals immediately on scene in a conflict situation and able to render immediate emergency medical care. The facts speak for themselves: when Civilian Paramedics are trained in military as well as policing tactics in order to support their local law enforcement agencies, more lives are saved than through the normal and conventional ways of EMS. Most of South Africa can be considered a high-risk environment, especially in the realm of emergency medical care.
We believe that this course would make an immerse difference in your day –to-day lifestyle, the way you deal with emergencies, as well as your every day work on the South African streets.
