    Trauma Training provide a great course. Having taken the DMTR course with Ian several times over the years, it’s great to see the no nonsense approach to teaching transfers so well to the TADS course. The online learning makes this course very convenient. Being able to access the lessons from the minute you book means you can chip away at it over several weeks. Ian’s vast experience in the areas of advance trauma life support makes for some interesting tutorials and Normans daily zoom meetings talking through real life scenarios are a valuable insight to any would be supervisors. Can’t recommend the Trauma Training team enough, appreciate all your help and guidance, guys.

    Many thanks!
