I am a retired paramedic practitioner. I retired in 2013 after more than 33 years’ service. In that time, I have been to incidents where no first aid was given and to incidents where first aid was given to very good effect. I have attained my level 3 Education and Teaching certificate. I qualified as an instructor with Nuco Training. I have public liability insurance and a checkable DBS Certificate. I feel passionate that as many people as possible learn first aid as I feel it will give them the confidence to deal with incidents in their home and in a public place. Most importantly it will also teach them to give effective Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
