- Hybrid format (70% practical-attendance and 30% theoretical-online)
The course combines online and face-to-face training, using an active methodology that encourages student participation and experiential learning of the didactic contents through group and individual practices.
The methodology includes the assignment of tasks, guided discovery and problem solving, so that the teaching-learning process achieves the proposed objectives. Student participation is active, focusing both on individual work and on the importance of the individual in the group, based on group work techniques that are so important for the successful performance of this profession.
Each traffic accident is unique, dynamic and variable, such as the type and number of vehicles involved, their positions, the number and condition of the victims, and the internal and external hazards. All of these factors play their part in determining the appropriate actions and the order in which they should be carried out. The scene of a rescue is extremely dangerous, where personal safety, the training received, the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and knowledge of the rescue equipment being used are critical.
The main objective is to provide professionals with a solid foundation in intervention techniques to safely lead the teams that lead the actions in road accidents, acquiring skills in the use of new tools of rescue teams and knowledge of the risks arising from new technologies in vehicles. All of them are skills and knowledge necessary to achieve safer, faster and more effective interventions. In this way, professionals will be able to understand the difficulties faced by their teams, understand their concerns and provide them with the support they need at all times and replace them if necessary. The SAVYT method homogenizes a methodology of intervention in the treatment and rescue of accident victims in road accidents, a methodology that is being adopted by most of the Fire Services in the world so that we all use identical theoretical and operational concepts, where planning replaces improvisation to face with guarantees any action in the event of a traffic accident. The most important thing, always, is to share knowledge.
In general terms, we think of emergency victims as those who have suffered some kind of injury or loss; however, the concept of victim is broader from a psychosocial perspective. First responders are considered third-degree victims because, although they are not always in permanent action, they are subjected to high levels of stress.
The objective of this training is to prepare professionals for psychological assistance appropriate to the needs of the injured, implementing psychological first aid to immediately help restore the equilibrium of the affected persons. Hence the need for intervention personnel (firefighters, etc.) in crisis and emergencies to receive specialized and specific attention to help them face the challenges of their task at different times and levels, thus avoiding subsequent problems.

Safety airbags, reinforced bodywork, ABS, ESC, electrical systems… Today’s cars are safer than they were ten years ago. New and future propulsion systems, such as hybrid, electric, hydrogen or natural gas, contribute to making vehicles more environmentally friendly. These sophistications also increase the risks and dangers to which those involved in the rescue of traffic accidents are exposed, in addition to the complications of intervening in modern vehicles and the removal of those affected, since, in cases of a serious accident, the removal of the injured, which previously took no more than ten minutes, now takes much longer. The automotive sectors are advancing rapidly, so it is necessary to continue researching and updating in these types of vehicles to ensure the safety of the injured and of the professional intervening in these types of vehicles.

In recent years, the number of accidents involving vehicles with new technologies has increased, as have the risks and dangers to which those involved in traffic accident rescues are exposed. In addition to this, there are the complications of extricating modern vehicles and extracting victims. It is therefore of vital importance that professionals acquire a solid foundation in intervention techniques, as well as knowledge of the risks arising from the new steel and alternative propulsion vehicles, cars, trucks and buses. Likewise, it is necessary for them to know the operation of the methodology of action that is being established from the different international organizations of rescue in traffic accidents and the new tools of the rescue teams. This specialization course includes a part of theoretical knowledge, basic to be able to perform the work effectively and with full guarantees of safety, and practical, to know in situ the development of the work.

- Types of cutting techniques
- New Vehicle Technology (NVT)
- Accident / trauma care management
Comprehensive care for the polytraumatized patient is the implementation of systematic, orderly and planned measures to ensure optimal results. By carrying out these measures in a protocolized manner, correct action is ensured at all times. It is integral because it refers to a whole care pathway, similar to the links of a chain in which each one must be prepared to offer the best possible help in each of the care settings. It begins with prevention and ends with the patient’s rehabilitation and reintegration into daily life.
Pre-hospital care is an essential part of comprehensive care for the trauma patient and aims to carry out measures with proven effectiveness to ensure short-term survival and reduce morbidity and mortality from the very place where the accident occurs. The objective is to recover and/or maintain vital functions, to initiate early treatment of primary injuries (depending on the preparation of the intervening person and the available material) and to prevent secondary injuries. For this it is essential to know and practice an assessment and treatment methodology (XABCDE) that detects and resolves situations that can end the patient’s life in a very short space of time, and that ensures a detailed evaluation that prevents some injuries from going unnoticed.
- To teach different mechanisms of injury that occur in traffic accidents.
- Systematic assessment of patients with polytraumatisms

This course provides the necessary techniques to rescue victims in special situations such as landslides, slopes, or heavy vehicle rescue, among others. It will provide the student with the knowledge of rescue in major natural disasters or attacks involving heavy vehicle transport that require the implementation of a common work procedure. In this sense, the coordination work will be the most determining factor, in addition to the knowledge of vehicle structures, safety, handling and efficiency with tools.

Tractors and machinery are involved in almost 50% of the fatalities and disabling injuries in the agricultural area, so rural response personnel must have the necessary competencies to handle incidents involving this equipment, whether on or off the equipment. The skills the student will learn in this course can be used on rural machines or those used in manufacturing industries, so this training program also applies to all emergency services. The student will learn how to develop rescue strategies for various types of tractor and machinery related incidents.
- To help emergency personnel be aware of the many hazards that could occur during the management of an agricultural emergency.
- To help emergency personnel understand the importance of pre-planning for various agricultural emergencies
- Help fire units specialize in various aspects of agricultural rescue, such as incidents involving machinery, chemicals, animals, or confined spaces
- Encouraging fire units to work together to develop effective agricultural rescue strategies that will result in higher quality prehospital patient care and animal response
- Teach first responders to be proficient in their area of expertise (fire, rescue…) while handling agricultural emergencies
