Systematic Medical And Response Training Solution
“There really is a difference between obtaining a certificate merely for the sake of business compliance, and knowing how to care for and preserve life under sometimes difficult and realistic conditions”
The S.M.A.R.T. Solution (Est. 2006) is a training company specialising in Wilderness First Aid, Fire Fighting and Health and Safety training, developed for the South African bush environment.
The company is owned and operated by Andrew Miller, who brings 16 years of personal operational experience as a fire fighter/medic and 7 years employed as a basic life support instructor, he decided to break away from the mundane main-stream and start an emergency awareness and preparedness training company with a new and exciting vision; That of turning boring, one-way first aid lectures into dynamic, inter-active, outcomes-based life-skills that introduce an accelerated learning curve with enhanced memory retention.
He combines his passion to teach with his love for the bush, he recognised and identified a need for comprehensive, environmental specific training in the wilderness arena. Being in such remote region’s emergency response is slow in getting to them and the possibilities of injuries in this environment is great. The other factor to be considered is this industry works largely with guests and foreign tourists which means that it is essential for the staff to be comprehensively trained in basic emergency care,
Andrew adjusted his course and extended it by a day to include modules that would ensure the student would be prepared to assist with any remote medical emergency and manage the situation until qualified emergency medical help arrived. We have in fact had some students feedback to us how their training has assisted in them being able to save a life, which is very satisfying as this is what we are all about, saving lives.
We are passionate about imparting knowledge and the importance of safety. This passion also means that the training is done in a practical manner with real life scenarios allowing the learner to leave the training prepared for any emergency situation.
