Civilian Pre-Deployment Training
RTMC also trains civilians - mainly MOD Civil Servants - who are deploying or visiting an operational theatre. Training spans 3 days and covers many different aspects of life in theatre as well as current advice and information on health, safety and security. It includes a fitness assessment, first aid training (based on battlefield casualty drills and involving participation in casualty simulations), cultural briefs and a talk given by a civilian who has recently been in theatre. This also covers the welfare package available to civilians before, during and after their tour/visit. We also ensure that each civilian receives and tests the correct Personal Protective Equipment required. Prior to attending all civilians must undergo a medical and dental examination to ensure full fitness and updating of relevant vaccinations. In the main these are also carried out at RTMC.
