BA (Hons), PGDE – Lead First Aid and Confined Space Instructor, Managing DirectorAs a former Royal Marine I have seen my fair share of first aid incidents both here and overseas; and I know fully the importance of providing timely and effective first aid care to those people who need it most. I have worked as a fully qualified Lecturer at a leading Southwest college; during this time one of my roles was to provide the continuous training and retraining of staff and students in first aid and scene management. I have a wide range of experience in teaching and instructing a variety of different learners and for this reason I ensure that all learning styles are catered for within the lessons. We are based in the Gloucestershire area but with an extensive team of instructors we are more than willing to travel around the country to your location and deliver courses on your site in order to minimise disruption to your staff.
Most recently I have work within the Maritime Security Industry in an anti-piracy team medic role. The remoteness of this work has led to me furthering my own skill set by completing numerous trauma management courses, and very soon trauma courses will also be offered in conjunction with our regular courses.
This was a very good course and my skills have really improved since attending, I have learnt how to deal with accidents and how to conduct myself in an emergency.
This course has really made me confident as a first aider, it was fun and the instructor was brilliant.
Quite simply Ben was brilliant!
I learned a lot that I didn’t know and it has given me confidence to administer first aid if required, I really enjoyed this course as it was easily understood.
I would fee very scared but would now be prepared to help people who need it if possible. To me the most important thing was to learn the procedure for CPR and the first action to take. The course has been packed but really enjoyable.
Wow just received a phone call from a company in Worcester where I taught CPR and oxygen administration two weeks ago. It turns out one of their fellow workers collapsed yesterday from a cardiac arrest and his colleagues who leapt into action and responded in the correct way received praise from the cardiac surgeon who said they undoubtedly saved his life. That is what it’s all about and I am really proud to say I taught them the basics to make that difference. Death 0 – First Aid and Trauma Training 1. Don’t delay, learn the basics today!
A really enjoyable course in quite challenging surroundings, Ben dealt brilliantly with the situation and continued to keep the course running even when interrupted by clients, a great course that has refreshed my skills.
