Thursday, July 21. KYIV — The Canadian medical instructors are delivering a training course for about 20 Ukrainian military candidates, who will become medical instructors after their graduation.

“This is the second course. We used to deliver it for soldiers and trained them to render medical care under fire. Then we decided to train instructors,” Mr Gualtier, Chief Course Instructor, told.

The course consists of two parts. First week — CFAE. Students are trained to render medical aid under the NATO standards. Second week — Instructors Training (TTT+). Medical specialists are trained under the ‘Train the Trainer’ principle.

The graduates will pass exams, receive appropriate certificates and be given individual first aid kits (IFAK).
