A little about their expert trainer

The course will be delivered by Stephan Wilcox, who has over 30 years frontline Paramedic experience with the NHS. Stephan’s deliver style is very relaxed yet extremely informative. This enables the delegates to acquire new skills and gain the confidence to carry them out should the occasion arise. Stephan has been delivering first aid courses to both the private and public sectors for 12 years and is the author of the 44 page training manual that each delegate receives on the day of the course and which many other first aid training providers now also use for their courses.
