  • First Aid - Fundamentals- 2020 participant

    This course easily outdid my expectation, and it was the most interesting and comprehensive first aid and first responder training I have been on to date. Very experienced instructor who simplified the complexity of providing medical care in a marine environment.

    First Aid - Fundamentals - 2021 participant 

    People often laugh about first aid on a drop zone, but I found this course was extraordinarily helpful in learning how to manage a major trauma at our home drop zone. The instructor was an experienced paramedic and an experienced skydiver who understood the environment and gave us the confidence to manage a patient in the field. High recommend for any skydivers to attend this one!

    Marine First Aid - 2021 participant

    This training was some of the most interesting marine first aid training. The instructor was aces and we covered everything that was relevant to working in a marine environment.

    Free Diver First Responder  - 2021 participant

    Excellent! Instructor was very experienced paramedic with plenty of water experience to contextualise the training. Highly recommend this course.

    Marine First Responder - 2022 participant 

    This course was brilliant and a must do for anyone wishing to or heading off on a boat. This will give you confidence you need to take care for all kinds of injuries / illnesses when you are more than a few hours or days from help. Couldn’t recommend this course more.
