Excellent course! Very personable, enjoyable and interesting and Marie did an excellent job in presenting us with scenarios relevant to the outdoor situations we could find ourselves in. An extremely positive experience.

Marie Lyons has been involved in pre hospital care and outdoor first response for 20 years, both as resident nurse and centre manager in Delphi adventure centre and as a long standing member of Mayo Mountain Rescue team. Marie is also a trained wilderness EMT. Living in the small sea side town of Louisburgh in the West of Ireland, she has the opportunity to enjoy her love of the great outdoors and a passion for traipsing around a mountainy environment. She also works part time in Mayo General hospital where she enjoys the pleasure of looking after patients with a roof over their head!
 
Her experience ensures the trainer has first hand real-world experience of the difficulties posed in managing casualties in the more challenging outdoor environment using only the equipment that can be carried in a ruck sack.
