DMALS Training Sessions

Developing the first aid skills of mine action workers is of utmost importance as it contributes to saving the lives of those who were initially committed to saving the lives of others. In this scope, the LMAC, in accordance with the IMAS and NMAS, organized a 9-day Demining Medics Advanced Life Support (DMALS) training for 12 trainees including 10 LMAC staff and LAF Engineering staff along with 1 HI and 1 DCA officer, from 31 March to 15 May 2015 at its headquarter in Fiyadiyeh. The sessions were provided by the instructors of the National School for Emergency Care (NSEC) and with the support of the World Health Organization (WHO). The training aimed to enable each trainee to develop a better understanding, and to enhance their casualty monitoring and incident management skills.

The training was divided into both practical and theoretical elements, and was marked by incident scenario based training methods. The sessions provided attendees with a further understanding as well as with techniques that will help them build confidence and develop their first aid skills into complete incident management.

The end of the training was marked by a graduation ceremony that was held on May 18th, 2015 under the patronage of the Lebanese Army Commander represented by the LMAC Director, during which trainees received follow-up certificates from the representatives of the NSEC and the WHO. The graduation was followed by a cocktail party.
