A little bit about the instructor: I come from Australia where I was a former Registered Nurse, having worked in Paediatrics, Emergency, and Operating Theatres. I made a move to the UK and decided I wanted to move into the teaching arena. Where I taught Mandatory Training, Manual Handling and First Aid to healthcare workers.
I took some time off teaching and explored the oceans, working on-board Superyachts, as stewardess and Medic. This job took me to Mallorca where I settled and I picked up my nursing skills once more working for Medical Support Offshore (MSOS).
I teach bestoked One Day Elementary First Aid courses to Superyacht crew for MSOS. As well as teach First Responders on-board how to use the “Themis” which is a Telemedical Communication Platform. Sending patient information directly to a Doctor, if a crew member or guest is unwell out at sea.
Helping others is a passion of mine, which is why I find training people in first aid and medical support so very rewarding. What could be better than potentially saving a life?

The First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) was founded in June 2012. The aim of FAIB is to ensure that the standards required of First Aid at Work First Aid Training Providers remains at the highest possible level after the withdrawal of approvals from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) in October 2013. This ultimately will ensure that work place first aiders know how to deal calmly, confidently and appropriately with any first aid situation arising in the workplace.
