Ambulance Trust training courses gain national recognition
The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) is delighted to announce its success in gaining accreditation by the Institute of Civil Protection and Emergency Management (ICPEM) for its resilience training courses.
The assessment process has taken since November 2012 and was extremely rigorous in its approach but the mapping of all of the courses to the skills for justice standards and the new Department of Health EPRR standards evidently proved its value.
EEAST provides the best courses in the UK, with clients from NHS trusts, fire and police services, HPA, local authorities and international and the Crown Dependencies of Guernsey and Jersey.
EEAST’s head of resilience and special operations, Robert Flute said this endorsement would not have been achieved without all the resilience departments’ hard work and commitment, particularly the team who put together the considerable documentation required.
“Our department is extremely proud of this achievement and EEAST is the first UK ambulance service to receive ICPEM endorsement for its portfolio of resilience training courses.
“The assessment process was extremely comprehensive and academically based.
“In times of change across the NHS, resilience is essential and we can offer command courses at all levels from operational to chief executive with the confidence that any participants will be able to demonstrate competence at the appropriate level.
“Our next target is university accreditation of our command courses via the UEA of which negotiations are at an early stage.”
