The Exploration Care Program is a specialist safety programme catering for the needs of the mineral, oil and gas exploration sectors. The ECP Program includes medical and non-medical safety training elements to address the main hazards whilst operating in the UK and overseas, from basic to advanced medical programmes certified by the leading global medical institutions to vehicle safety training, water based safety, hygiene, tropical health, hostile environment and security briefings. Specialist services also include crisis response training, tabletop and live field exercises. Our training courses have been developed in conjunction with our clients in the respective fields. They are practical, effective and proven.
These safety programmes are underpinned by Remote Environment Medical Training. The ECP modular medical programme was developed by remote area specialists, military trauma medics and experienced outdoor instructors, to meet the growing medical needs of the expedition, media, outdoor and travel industries. There are a number of programmes, catering for the diverse requirements of our customers, ranging from an introductory first aid level through to advanced medical procedures for doctors, nurses and those operating in remote environments where more advanced skills may be the difference between life and death. Bespoke programmes are also available upon request.
Our instructors are regularly called on to provide specialist lectures on remote
area medical and safety issues. These include some of the best known providers in the expedition sector including National Geographic, media organizations and academic establishments such as the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
Now in our second decade of trading, we have trained over 10,000 people worldwide, encompassing many nationalities, including delivering training overseas from China to Peru, Sarawak to Mexico and Germany to Norway. Our clients include Exploration geologists to Outdoor Professionals, Expedition Leaders to TV presenters, Gap year students to serving military. We are proud of our client list which includes leading companies from the expedition and mineral exploration industries as well as prestigious academic establishments sending researchers overseas and medics who require training or experience in remote or hostile environments
