Education & Training

Vigilint?s board-certified emergency physicians are specialists in prehospital and disaster medicine, travel medicine and emergency medical education. Together they have created an innovative emergency medical response curriculum, CAPStone™, which transforms untrained personnel into high-functioning responders using a staged approach that fosters fast, effective learning.

?We have used Vigilint for our annual property staff emergency response training for years. They train all members of the property staff on-site. Training includes a property medical risk assessment and Vigilint developed customized training scenarios based on the unique features of the different properties. All our staff participates in the quarterly online distance learning sessions. When Vigilint is on-site, it often feels like equal parts team-building exercise and emergency medical response training.?
