First Aid Training


Today I ran a first aid course in Towersey, Oxfordshire.

The course was organised by Jo Horne a member of BNI and owner of Sound4Vision .

We had plenty of characters to keep everyone amused and lots of opportunity for learning.

I would like to offer a huge thank you to Jo who supplied a lovely lunch for everyone.

AED Refresher at Claire Foundation


It's that time of year again, annual AED refresher training with the staff of the Claire Foundation in Buckinghamshire.

They also updated me on the amount of times they had had to use the first aid skills learned in an earlier training course with me.  Quite a few on all accounts.

Emergency First Aid At Work with Dogs for Good


Off to Banbury today to work with Dogs for Good.

Their new training room is excellent which opened in February.  It's a good size room, kitchen and rest area, ideal for training people and to use as a training area for dogs.

The team are really close which made teaching today a lot of fun.

The weather was perfect this weekend for our outdoor first aid course with staff from John Hampden Grammar School and a blast from the past one of my students from the level 3 outdoor eduction course from BCA College.

The majority of our time was spent outside using the surrounding Chilterns as our classroom and to make realistic scenario's to reinforce learning.

Looking ahead we have three first aid courses, two A&E shifts and I have a day of learning too.

I have been attending their well-being weeks over the last year.  To date I have run first aid and safer driving presentations.

Final Day at Hughendon Manor with the National Trust


What an amazing day, the weather just got better and the team of Rangers should really be on the stage.

Slipping easily into character, our scenarios were made very real with everyone's acting abilities.

We made the exercises relevant to the work environment focusing on situations people could find themselves in.
