TRiM began within the UK’s Royal Marines Commandos.
However, many other non-military organisations now use TRiM including the Foreign and Commonwealth Office; media organisations including the BBC and the emergency services including the London Ambulance Service and numerous UK police forces; and private organisations.
TRiM has been successfully employed by various organisations after a number of incidents, including September 11th 2001, the Bali Bombings, the London Bombings as well as numerous more ‘routine’ traumatic incidents, such as vehicle accidents and assaults.
Our MedTRiM course is taught within a range of emergency courses, including School of Medicine degrees such as an Intercalated BSc degree in Emergency, Pre Hospital and Emergency care. MedTRiM is seen as an important aspect of assisting doctors who are planning a career in acute care or an acute speciality.
Our training courses are designed to be interactive and allow delegates and organisations develop, not only a response to an incident, but their rersillience prior to an incident. Understanding a response or feeling to a given incident is part of the foundation DNA TRiM has been built on.
Many delegates come away from our courses understanding a little more about themselves and their responses, thus building their own resilliences.
