Director and First Aid Trainer
After working in sales for many years I retrained and reinvented myself!
I hold a Post Compulsory Certificate in Education as well as level 4 qualifications in ESOL and Literacy and I am currently working towards a Masters degree in Training the Trainer.
I am joint owner/director of Skills4sport Ltd and a recognised registered First Aid Trainer and Assessor delivering dynamic, interactive First Aid training to industry, as well as to the education and the health sectors.
I have many regular clients whose staff I train year after year; my speciality is making First aid training interesting, relevant and engaging.
Alex obtained a degree in Recreational Management from Sheffield Hallam University in 1996 and has had a full and diverse career ever since. He spent six years in the RAMC 208 Field Hospital as a combat medical technician with the Territorial Army.
Over the past nine years Alex has been working as a qualified HSE trainer and assessor, working with sports clubs, coaches and academic institutions in Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire. His roles have included teaching, assessing, risk assessment for journeys and trips as well as advising on health and safety. The experience Alex has gained over the past nine years stand him in good stead for his role as head of training and development. "First aid knowledge is equally important to a coach as their own sport specific expertise."
