Your Tutor
JANE FERRETT has been a First Aider since 1991, a First Aid Instructor since 1993 & I set up Accident & Emergency Ltd, in 1997. She runs the whole range of First Aid courses for small groups & blue-chip companies alike and uses dynamic, interesting & fun training methods whilst using realistic, hygienic training aids. Her raison d'etre is to teach others how to confidently give lifesaving First Aid. Jane is a very-hands on First Aider. Jane has a wealth of real-life experience from CPR, CPR with LAS on ride outs with them, motorbike accidents, etc. Jane attends Zoll High Quality CPR & AED training Workshops & various related Symposiums. In December 2019 Cardiac Arrest Symposium, she met Professor Douglas Chamberlain. Jane uses Douglas' quote when teaching: "The only damage you can do with an AED is if you whack someone around the head with it". CPR gives a 1% survival rate, using an AED within 0-2 minutes is 71%. Therefore, Jane keeps her Schiller Easyport AED, the smallest AED in the world, with me at all times. An AED can be used on anyone over 1 years old. 12 fit & apparently healthy young people die every week, in the UK, from Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the Young. If anyone stops breathing their heart will stop. Ofsted/ Early Years did not include AED use on their March 2017 syllabus. Jane includes AED, at no extra charge, on EVERY course. We practice with 8 x various models of AED Trainers, on 4 different sized adults & child Annies. Jane includes even when not on the set syllabus: Child & baby CPR/ Choking, Sepsis, PEP, Panic Attacks/ Hyperventilation & Spinal Recovery Position. In advance of your course I email learners blended e-learning documents, these are easy to read & I detail some great website videos to watch. The Health & Safety Executive & Ofsted recognise this form of learning. Arriving to the course with an existing knowledge will assist any person to become a fully confident & competent First Aider.
