One of my proudest moments was when I was contacted by someone I had trained and told that the first aid training I had provided had saved one of their team’s life.


Everyone sees first aid training as ticking a box.  Well it is, but it can also make a difference.  Remember it could be you needing help.


As you may have gathered I am a first aid trainer, I am also a little different.  I am not an amateur or a volunteer, I am an ambulance professional who maintains my annual CPD and works for the NHS in a bank capacity keeping my pre hospital skills fresh.


I also have a background in remote emergency care, chainsaw use and tree climbing which all helps to making my training as fit for purpose as possible.


We work in partnership with suppliers, an agricultural college and the Horse Trust in Buckinghamshire to provide excellent facilities and equipment, we also travel to train at your venue.


Please visit our website for more information www.inveniotraining.co.uk we will be providing advice and updates on courses in due course.

The incident was choking.  The casualty had a complete blockage of their airway during their meal break and a colleague after completing my hands on training using a choking suit was able to clear the blockage in a timely manner preventing a worsening of the individual.

My cousin saved a feller in the cinema from death by choking - Heimlich maneuver, worked. One of the more common deadly accidents that can befall us, all the more so because nobody expects it. Must do a refresher course soon...

I did read this one time, not sure how effective it is but worth a try if you are on your own.

Heimlich maneuver can be done on oneself, wrap arms under your ribs, cough strongly. Repeat till clear.
