About Us

It all began with a vision of a better way

After spending nearly 7 years working in hostile environments around the globe, PracMed NZ’s founder, Simon Carkeek, returned home and started working in industry training.  He saw firsthand how poor the quality training was in NZ, and how many organisations treat courses as ‘tick-the-box’ exercises only for compliance. 

 

He knew that in order to save more New Zealanders from preventable death, Kiwis needed to be given the knowledge and opportunity for engaging, relevant training.  His goal is to ensure there are more competent and confident responders, and less qualified witnesses.

 

In 2018, PracMed NZ was born.

Executing the Mission

Initially leading the way with the design and manufacture of the Individual First Aid System, PracMed NZ soon realised that very few civilians new how to use haemorrhage control products that are readily available in the military.  Equipment is worthless without proper training.   So, Stop the Bleed®, PracMed NZ’s revolutionary course was launched. It combined evidence based medicine and real world experience from the sharp end of hostile environment operations into a succinct package suitable and relevant for civilian application, both for the workplace and for individuals.

 

 

Students were blown away by the practicality and efficiency of the teaching style which lead to the development of the broader training schedule.  PracMed NZ expanded their product range to match the increased demand, became a Ministry of Education approved Private Training Establishment and are now able to award NZQA unit standards for their courses.

 

 

The future is bright for PracMed NZ as it continues its charge against mediocrity, delivering standard setting, life-saving training and products relevant to every single New Zealander.

Statement from the MD

Accidents happen.

 

As humans, we have an inherent desire to protect our children, families and wider community. A practical and pragmatic approach to training is required in order to make a difference. We should always strive to learn more, to hone and practice our skills to give us the best chance of winning in what could be the darkest fight of our lives – saving the life of another human.

 

Learning never stops.
