Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume
Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
Emergency First Aid Training
As part of our business, we're very conscious that we have customers to look after at our training centre and that they could have accidents or be taken ill at any time; and that will be all the more of a concern when we offer overnight accommodation, and widen our customer base / operation to a full hotel in coming months. So we concluded that we should go away and get ourselves trained up for emergency first aid - enough to stabalise a situation, call in the experts, and care for the patient until they arrive.
But where to go for such a course? Well - "start looking close to home" is the motto. We went on our First Aid course yesterday - an excellent public course run by Peak Health Promotions
in (would you believe it?) the centre of Melksham, just five minutes walk from our new place.
The tutor - Paul Cambridge - was excellent; good information, well presented, tailored to fit the specific questions and work place requirements of the delegates. His company, it turns out, is a local one in the town although they will work all over the country. I can't recommend him enough - he's on 01225 700997.
Following on from the day, we decided that ALL of our staff, and not just Lisa and myself, should complete this training. We are just ten doors up from the local hospital (with its casualty unit), but never the less we feel it is utterly in our customer and staff's interest for everyone to have a little training about what to do if a medical crisis hits. It could save a life. (written 2006-09-01, updated 2011-06-27)
