Everything You Need to Start a New Career as a First Aid Trainer 

Ali Cameron was our first new trainer. He had these comments about the process:

“The training period was done over a number of courses, first by observing and then co-running courses. On each course I covered a larger subject area but this was agreed upon with the trainer before hand, and I was never put under any pressure to do more than I thought I could cope with. 

Good, supportive & constructive feedback was always given after each session, giving me more confidence and enabling me to improve my delivery. 

Since the completion of the training and being signed off to run courses, I have now run seven courses, over 3 months and would have easily recouped my initial investment in equipment.”
