MIMMS Advanced (formerly known as Commander) runs over 3 consecutive days. It is an accredited course with ALSG (UK) and is widely accepted internationally. The content includes command, safety, communication, assessment, triage, treatment and transport. The course is competency based and participants are tested in the practical application of skills taught. This course is particularly relevant for those in senior positions likely to take a coordination or command role, or those involved with staff development/training. Manuals and other materials are supplied as part of the course and instructors are experienced emergency managers, paramedics and medicine and nursing specialists. As the MIMMS Advanced course is a fully inclusive, comprehensive course, there are no requirements to have completed the MIMMS team member course first.
