Crew-members can now take MedAire’s flagship Management of Inflight Illness & Injury (MIII) training course virtually. As well as how to assist quickly and accurately when a medical event occurs, the course now includes COVID-19 risk mitigation measures.
Students in the virtual course receive a package of life-saving training equipment and instruction on first responder techniques via interactive guidance. The class is delivered via Zoom to engage students through voice, video and chat.
The MedAire training pack includes a manikin and wrist monitor, bandages and personal precaution equipment for students to get hands-on experience in proper technique. Students receive an American Heart Association CPR card upon successful completion of the course.
The virtual MIII curriculum also includes detailed information on essential COVID-19 risk mitigation measures, including personal precaution equipment – types, uses and hands-on training on the proper donning and doffing of gloves and masks. Other topics include how to deliver oxygen on board safely to reduce exposure to airborne viruses; aircraft surface cleaning and disinfecting; hotel room safety for crew that must overnight; and infection control guidelines for cabin crew-members.
“Innovation is a hallmark of MedAire,” said Bill Dolny, CEO at MedAire. “As the needs of those in the aviation industry evolve, MedAire is continuously adapting and innovating to meet those needs. Since 1986, thousands of crew-members and flight departments have relied on MedAire’s first responder training. Now, crew-members can continue to receive the training they need, regardless of their location.”
