First Aid!!!



After Years of Looking for a Qualified Person to Train First Aid I had the Good Fortune to find “Richard Thomas” (H.S.E. Trainer) He is a professional Medic for the Swat Teams in the UK and Qualified to Train in First Aid. Seeing as a lot of the Activities here at Our Chiang Mai X-Centre are of the supposedly Extreme kind I had always wanted to give the Staff¬† at least Basic First Aid Skills, So I was very Happy to find Richard. His Courses are limited to 10 People at a time to ensure everyone gets a chance to participate and Understand what to do!

Here is Richard giving some Instruction!


Also to Ensure all Our Staff understand everything He Provides another Qualified Thai Lady “Khun Tania” to Translate and Direct in Thai when Necessary!!!

Richard and Tania together.


Yesterday was the First Group and Next Tuesday they will be running another Course here at the X-Centre. This Time both Myself & Long will be participating.

At the End of the Course everyone is Presented with a Certificate so besides the Fact the Staff actually Feel Proud to receive their Certificates I am Sure They are happy to have Accomplished the Course!!! For Myself I am just Happy they had the Chance to Train and one Day if they ever have the Misfortune of being in a Situation hopefully They can recall enough to Help someone. If anyone is interested in contacting Richard in Regard to conducting a First Aid Course Privately or for a Company feel free to contact Me and I will Pass on His Details.

Better Safe than Sorry!!!

Cheers Ian.
