This training has been developed by humanitarian specialists for humanitarian workers. It will enable participants to anticipate travel and better prepare for their trip at all levels (equipment, material, psychological and technical), to increase their knowledge and control of the vehicle as well as to manage emergency situations and apply first aid techniques.

The aim of this driving level 1 training is to provide organisations with high-quality participatory driving training for passengers and drivers. It aims to increase staff confidence in order to ensure better preparation, reduce the likelihood of incidents, while teaching controlled reactions to follow in the event of an incident. This course teaches you the steps and techniques for managing emergencies and life-threatening situations.

The course is based on 80% practice and 20% theory.

  • Vehicle preparation and general maintenance.
  • How to ensure the safety of staff/passengers.

You will practice eight skills to help patients who may be in shock, in respiratory arrest, in cardiac arrest, with a spinal injury, or have severe bleeding. You will learn how to perform CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and how to assess and monitor the patient’s condition to give them the best possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.

This course also teaches you how to provide first aid to reduce pain and reduce the risk of worsening the patient’s condition. You will learn how to assess various injuries and illnesses and how to practice bandaging and splinting.
