It builds on the D13.1 Standard FAW programme. It covers medical capability and intent working within zonal areas often referred to as the Therapeutic vacuum where medical aid is not immediate or medic is unsupported.
This course is challenging in content and dynamic in application. It is scenario based and places delegates under challenging conditions. It’s designed to enhance the capability of the medic . It covers operating in zonal areas known as HOT / WARM and COLD zones and teaches medics to manage medical interventions in non permissive hostile environments. Linked with a Emergency services multi agency approach known as JESIP this course takes you above and beyond the FAW / EFAW spectrum.
