Wey Farm Outdoors is proud to partner with Saviour Medical Ltd to bring you this 1-day Emergency First Aid course, which will equip you to deal with immediate life-threatening illness and injury in the home, work or outdoor setting. Some of the Training for this course will be outside even if it is raining, so make sure you have good wet weather clothing. We have plenty of great gear you can buy from our OutDoor Shop if you don’t have any. (Remember there is no such thing as bad Weather, just Bad Clothing!!!)
Saviour Medical Ltd have written the training syllabi for such high profile clientele as the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and HM Coastguard, so have great experience in delivering care in remote and hostile environments. What is unique about their courses is that they teach you based around a set of robust laminated check-card flow charts, which are yours to keep after the course. These check cards are in use with 30,000+ responders in the UK in many search and rescue, fire, police and ambulance organisations. They are proven to combat skill fade and remove the need for memory at the scene of an incident, when the first aider may already be under duress.
Grant Walkey has been involved in search and rescue and education for over 20 years, specialising in water rescue combining skills as a former firefighter and as a RNLI lifeboat crew, beach lifeguard, and Flood rescue team member and adding advanced skills both clinically as a paramedic and academically as a qualified teacher.
Grant teaches for Saviour Medical and also works as a bank paramedic for both SWAST and SCAS ambulance services in Cornwall, Dorset and Hampshire.
Prior to this Grant was a full-time staff member of the RNLI for 11 years serving initially as a sea survival and lifeboat trainer then specialised as a Casualty care trainer and finally progressed as SHE and Clinical Training Manager, managing a team of SHE professionals and paramedic trainers delivering the RNLI courses.
Grant maintained training others throughout this time for the RNLI but also on the faculties of ATACC (Anaesthesia & Critical Care), WEM (World Extreme Medicine) and for SLSGB.
