First Aid Training

If you’ve got to go to school, what better place to do it than in the gorgeous and glorious grandeur of Exeter Cathedral. And first aid training couldn’t have been more apt right now, given that Mr. Otter Vale has gone and fractured his collar bone on the hockey pitch.

It puts paid to his involvement in the progression of West of England over 40s team this summer, and as he can’t drive or lift things, it leaves us a little short in the kitchen. The lengths he’ll go to to try to take some time off… Thanks to Mark, Di and Denise for holding the fort so well.

Fortunately, Di recently completed her First Aid at Work training, and this week it was my turn to complete this course, so we are able to ensure he has “plenty” of sympathy – and slings!

Our training was again provided by Val Ranger of Split Second First Aid Training and I was very lucky to have been welcomed by the team at Exeter Cathedral and to benefit from their wonderful hospitality. Thanks to Stephen, Anna and Gary for their company and creating such an enjoyable learning environment. I also learned a little bit of history too, thanks to the display on the wall!

We are lucky to have such excellent trainers available locally. Val is an engaging, approachable and highly qualified tutor, who delivers an organised, relevant and extremely practical course; catering for all types of learning styles. We can’t recommend her enough, and are very lucky to have such great trainers in Val, Tayo Irawo and Jerry Diplock.

Once again, we take our training very seriously, but we’re hoping that this is training that we’ll never need to use. That said, should we need to, thanks to Val’s expertise we are confident that we’ll be able to step up if required.
