Strongmind has launched the world’s first e-TRiM course and it is proving to be both effective and popular. Many organisations have a dispersed workforce where it is challenging to bring people together for two days of intensive training. Working around shift patterns and coordinating dates too, can be difficult. The current Covid environment has added a new set of challenges for face to face training and travel.
This course allows individuals to study and become TRiM Practitioners in their own time and at their own pace. The course uses an excellent blended learning method that includes virtual interactions with a mentor, e learning and video – based exercises. Practical skills are assessed in scenario-based exercises with a mentor via virtual platform.
The course consists of 12-14 hours of study time and learners have six months to complete the training once they have registered. The course is fully accredited by the CPD Standards Office and learners will receive an endorsed certificate, Handbook and course materials on completion of the course. An online library of useful resources and additional information is also provided.
The course consists of 8 modules:
Module 1 – Introduction to Trauma Risk Management
Module 2 – Managing the scene of traumatic events and planning a TRiM response
Module 3 – Practical Planning exercise (virtual assessment)
Module 4 – Introduction to risk assessment
Module 5 – Conducting Risk assessments
Module 6 – Practical Risk assessment exercise (virtual assessment)
Module 7 – Personnel management issues
Final risk assessment exercise -virtual assessment
What our students are saying
“What an amazing two weeks. I learnt more in two weeks about TRiM and myself, than I did in the past twenty years. If you want to learn, understand and develop Trim, then, look no further than Strongmind Resilience. From the outset to completion the team were incredible, the organisation, the modules, the pre tests and the role play.
Thank you for an mazing course and for your professional and friendly approach”
Christopher Newman, Emergency Responder Deputy Team Leader Waterloo (N3)
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the rest of your team, for the support and
encouragement during my recent TRiM Practitioner training. The Course content was really good,
well presented and easy to use. I particularly liked that I could return to the assignments before the
practical assessments, just to reassure myself that I understood properly. It was really simple to
book appointments, for the practical sessions, and Zoom worked perfectly, for me. I received my
TRiM Practitioner pack quickly after completion of the course, and am impressed with the content
and the quality of the materials.
Above anything it was a pleasure to work with you, I was a bit nervous about the practical work,
especially because of the online nature of the training. However, You and Mark put me very much at
my ease and offered valuable feedback and encouragement, during the 1-2-1 aspects. It was fun to
do, despite it being a fairly serious subject, and learning should be fun.
Once again, please thank the whole team for me. I look forward to CPD and possibly further
extending my TRiM qualifications in future.
