First Aid Courses

ACCESS is delighted to share that we are offering  English language First Aid Skills Training courses in The Hague and Amsterdam. Open to all who would like to learn or brush up on their First Aid skills and of particular value for parents of young children. We are delighted to be able to work with Linda Malley and Ingrid Gustafsson-Hilberink on this project.

The Training

Linda Malley has been providing this course to and through many organisations in the Netherlands. The feedback is impressive, as is the knowledge she shares. Ingrid Gustafsson-Hilberink is Registered General Nurse working at the British School in Leidschenveen, and is familiar with the challenges in a family. Among the topics covered are: caring for unresponsive breathing casualties; CPR; choking; wounds; bleeding; shock and seizures. Some hands-on examples of what to do with minor injuries – sprains and strains; head injury; burns, bites and stings, severe allergic reaction; heat exhaustion and asthma, will also be covered.

The Trainers

Linda Bosma-Malley trained as a Registered General Nurse in the UK, specialising in Paediatrics. Having worked in Neurology as a nurse in the Netherlands and as a First Aid Trainer during her family’s time in South Africa, Linda understands the importance of providing people with the skills and confidence to respond effectively to accidents or sudden illness. Linda is a registered and certified First Aid Trainer, qualified to teach and assess a full range of first aid courses.

Ingrid had a varied background,  before becoming a psychiatric nurse for children for 10 years. She has lived in Sweden, Dubai and Portugal. And has been in the Netherlands since 2015.

Both are dedicated to teaching people the necessary skills that can make the difference when it really counts.

I attended the half day course which was taught in a very clear and informatively way. Ingrid, the instructor, was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The amount of material covered was very good. I would highly recommend anyone interested in first aid to take this course.
