Department of Defence extends Aspen Medical's contract to deliver vital training to ADF personnel in the Middle East
The Department of Defence has extended Aspen Medical’s contract to deliver the ‘Care of Battle Casualties’ training course to all Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel deploying to the Middle East until 31 August 2014.
The aim of this training is to ensure that all ADF personnel on operations are confident in their ability to provide immediate response healthcare in the deployed environment. The training is being undertaken at the Al Minhad Air Base in the United Arab Emirates by Aspen Medical medics with recent combat experience. To date, in excess of 3,500 personnel have been given this crucial training. This contract builds on our domestic and international Defence health expertise.
Glenn Keys, Aspen Medical's co-founder and Managing Director, said, “We are proud of our ongoing association with our Defence Forces both at home and overseas. We understand that this first aid training is an extremely important task, and the skills taught to our ADF personnel on these courses has and will continue to save lives.”
