We had a great weekend participating in the Forest School First Aid training course given by Marie Lyons of Remote West First Aid Training. This was a full two days of Remote Emergency Care, and in that time Marie crammed a lot of information and lots of hands on learning into what is a very practical course.
Marie did a brilliant job, giving all of us the confidence that we can cope with most of the situations we could potentially experience as outdoor instructors. Marie was direct, energetic and passionate about our learning and managed to guide us all through the training with a high standard of professionalism, clarity and humour. It was a great benefit to be taught by a trainer with such broad experience, as it enables Marie to call upon many first hand experiences to illustrate the importance of the concepts and skills she is teaching. The complete professional…..and great craic too!
Thanks Marie from Crann Og and all the Forest School trainees!
