These two day courses are delivered by Marty Curren. Marty is a friend of some 25 years who recently 'retired' from the fire service. He is a keen outdoorsman but his passion is on the road bike and can often be seen climbing the hills out of the north side of Hartlepool and out onto another huge ride. His experience while working in the Fire Service and applying this to our Outdoor First Aid courses gives our clients a unique opportunity to be able to deal with likely traumas in the hills and on the crags. We are so confident in our product we offer a full money back guarantee if you are not happy.
