I’m Rebecca and have been a trainer with DAT for about 10 years now. I love being able to turn a potentially dry or scary topic into something fun and engaging. Being a First Aid trainer is also a great way of meeting lots of interesting people and visiting different places! I deliver a range of courses including Emergency First Aid, Emergency First Aid at Work, First Aid at Work, First Aid at Work requalification and Paediatric First Aid. 


I’m Lee and I have been a trainer with DAT for over 5 years. In my previous roles as a lifeguard, leisure assistant and sports coach I have dealt with numerous First Aid incidents. It’s great to be able to share this knowledge and experience whilst still learning from the learners on our courses. I mainly deliver Emergency First Aid and Mini First Aiders.
