The director is an exercise physiologist and a soft tissue treatment specialist. First Aid can be arranged and tailored to the specific needs of your sporting organization. Specific training in musculo-skeletal problems and taping methods will be provided along with cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. On-site training gives you the flexibility to train at your workplace or sporting organization allowing your staff to stay in a familiar environment. It is a cost effective way to be trained and it saves time and effort.
