Teesside First Aid – About Us – Our Team Members
Teesside First Aid – About Us – Our Team Members; We are a training provider offering a range of first aid courses, pet first aid courses, security dog first aid courses and food hygiene qualifications to businesses, organisations and individuals throughout the UK.
The company was established in 2016 by Graeme Smith. Graeme has been a trained first aider for over 30 years, with certification from RLSS, RYA and STCW. During his previous career at sea Graeme was responsible for the medical welfare of all the crew onboard.
In May 2021 Graeme gained his QA Level 4 First Response Emergency Care (RQF), commonly known as FREC4.
Alongside his First Aid work Graeme also volunteered (2017-2022) as a Community First Responder for North East Ambulance Service. In this role Graeme responded to Category 1 (respiratory or cardiac arrest) emergencies and Category 2 (other life-threatening emergencies) in the local community. The experiences gained from this role is passed on in classes and makes a difference to real life first aid by having someone who not only teaches first aid, but practices it as well
Graeme is a registered childminding assistant giving him a unique insight to the requirements and integration of Paediatric First Aid; perhaps this a reason why so many of the Childminders from Tees Valley come to us for the Level 3 Paediatric Course (meets Ofsted’s requirements), and why the feedback from these courses is brilliant!
The company’s motto has always been to “low-cost, high quality training“ and this is something the business continues to deliver.
All Teesside First Aid trainers are DBS checked, highly experienced, competent and friendly and our training courses are tailored to meet the needs of the customer. Courses can be arranged for dates that suit you and bespoke courses can be delivered to suit your requirements.
