Testimonials from course candidates:
Breeda Gorman I recently completed a BLS and SPoRTS Immediate Care Course with Immediate Care Training through RCSI and could not recommend them highly enough! The instructors were obviously very experienced and knowledgeable in their field and were excellent at passing that information on to the participants on the course. The practical elements of the course really helped to reinforce the skills we were being taught and as a result I now feel more confident and competent in providing immediate care, either as part of a team or on my own. Best wishes for the future, Breeda Gorman MISCP.
Ms Nina Holden: "As a physiotherapist, I couldn't recommend this course enough to anybody who is interested in working with any sporting events. I felt it really covered all bases. The practical elements were excellent for preparing us for the real life scenarios of working with sports trauma. The faculty that facilitated the course were the best in their respective fields and taught us so much. They were so approachable and knowledgeable. I felt they were a real strength of the course and it was great to work with the sports physicians. After this course, I can honestly say I feel confident and competent in the part I can play in the provision of immediate care and in the management of sports trauma."
Dr Nathan Wall: "What made the course excellent for me was the large amount of time spent actively involved in the hands-on management of practical drills. This practice, combined with the knowledge base provided by tutorials, resulted in me feeling both confident and competent by the end of the course. Another strength of the course was the large number of mentors, each with vast experience in the area and all very enthusiastic and approachable. This gave the course a very interactive feel. Overall it was very beneficial for me and was both educational and enjoyable. I would recommend it to any junior doctor with an interest in sports medicine."
Dr Joe Conway: "This course is brilliantly put together to allow the team or sports event doctor / physiotherapists up skill or maintain their knowledge while practising their skills in a host of different emergency scenarios. The design of the course by the course director and the quality of tutors is exemplary with knowledgeable and experienced candidates creating a fantastic learning environment where you will also learn from each other."
