Simon Clooney

I am a freelance instructor with over 25 years’ experience in the outdoor industry. As well as first aid training I work with people of all ages in a variety of development training and outdoor leisure situations. I also act as a First Responder with North West Ambulance Service.
I live in the Lake District but my work regularly takes me all over the UK and abroad providing 1st aid training to foresters, outdoor educators, international schools, expedition leaders, hospitality workers, youth workers, engineering workers and many other professions.
My interactive courses are tailored to make them relevant to my clients’ specific environment and I try to copy some of the situations that you might be likely to find yourself dealing with.

Testimonials for Simon Clooney

I was very happy with the quality and the standard of the course, and particularly the instructor. Simon has the natural ability of being able to put students at ease through the use of positive training methods. The balance was struck perfectly between the theory and the practical application of First-aid. 10/10
