Rather than writing about ourselves all of the time on our blog we sometimes like to tell you about other interesting things – after all we can’t write about us every week, we’d run out of things to say So we had a little think and we thought we’d introduce you to one of our lovely friends who just so happens to be a rather talented chap. Say hello to Brad Marsh!
Brad runs and owns Atlantis First Aid and over the past year we have got to know him fairly well. We met him first in the summer months when he provided some of the team with first aid training and he recently provided us some fire safety training too.
Now we’ll hand you over to Brad and he can tell you some more about himself.
How did you come to set Atlantis First Aid up?
It all started when I went to Uni with the aim of becoming a PE teacher. At that time I was already a lifeguard, swimming teacher and had worked in hotels on functions, so I already knew I loved to teach/train/instruct and give amazing customer service! I also knew I liked to teach in ways that were interesting, fun AND got results.
I put myself on a First Aid and Lifeguard Instructor Course and loved every minute of it. It complimented my sports degree and background and I began to question my PE teacher aspirations. I felt there was much more freedom to use active and realistic training in first aid and it would make more of a difference to people’s lives. I really believed that first aid training as a whole was very dated and needed an injection of fresh, modern and up-to-date training techniques.
I began running first aid courses almost immediately, feedback from customers was brilliant and Atlantis First Aid was born! Our Personal style is one of professionalism, approachability, informality and honesty.
Tell us a bit about the company – what kind of training do you offer?
Atlantis First Aid now aims to be a “one-stop-shop” for all training in small to medium sized businesses. We don’t discount large or corporate customers. In fact we’ve just undertaken training for companies such as Siemens, JP Morgan Chase and Scottish and Southern Energy to name but a few. We just love the personal touch, help, support and advice we feel we can give to smaller businesses. Our range of courses include (almost) all First Aid courses, Fire Awareness and Fire Warden / Marshal courses, Manual Handling Courses of various types and coming soon… Food safety / Hygiene courses! Also, if we don’t personally offer the training you’re looking for, we (usually) know somebody who does it and does it well.
So there you have it. We hope you can get a feel for Brad and his company. We definitely recommend him! Take a little look at: www.atlantis-firstaid.com/ and no doubt Brad will be very happy to help
The man himself, Brad Marsh!
