Alex's passion for integrating Chinese and Western medicine stems from almost 35 years training in Japanese Martial Arts, philosophy and studying Namikoshi Shiatsu at Elite Martial Academy whilst serving concurrently for 23 years as a registered paramedic (undertaking over 17 years front line duties with the London Ambulance Service).
In 2007, Alex qualified from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM), Reading with a 1st Class BSc (Hons) in Traditional Acupuncture, and subsequently completed his postgraduate diploma in Tuina Chinese Massage and Medical QiGong in 2009.  Alex subsequently became a volunteer at the NHS Gateway Clinic in London.

With over 30 year teaching First Aid to a variety of clients (including colleges, clinics and practitioners from virtually every discipline) and with over 24 years of Front-line Accident and Emergency work (7 years as a police officer and subsequently over 17 years as a front-line London paramedic having personally attended over 30,000 emergency 999 calls) you can be sure of the quality of experience and teaching Alex brings to the table.

About your tutor: Alex Brazkiewicz

First Aid

First Aid is an important universal life skill and, as such, it is important that you are sure of the competency, experience and safety of your provider.

Our comprehensive Level 2, 1-day Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW)  courses have been designed to specifically meet the needs of Healthcare Professionals in a clinical environment, and include:

  • A Systematic Approach to dealing with any situation;
  • The unconscious patient, the Recovery Position, CPR and use of the Automatic External Defibrillator (AED);
  • Bleeding, Shock and Wounds (including burns and minor injuries);
  • Contents of a First Aid Box & Current First Aid Legislation;
  • Common medical conditions including Heart attacks, Strokes, Diabetic Emergencies, Fits and Seizures;

The course is limited to 12 attendees to enable maximum use of practical time and individual feedback.

This course will be run as a blended learning course: so you will need to attend a half day online course  (in the 6 weeks before the practical day) and a half day practical - please specify if you would prefer the morning (930am - 1pm) or the afternoon (130pm - 5pm) when you book for the practical day.

Due to current COVID-19 measures, the following are now in place:

  • A risk assessment is made prior to each course and for any onsite courses, the venue provider must ensure current government guidelines are complied with;
  • A health screening questionnaire must be completed prior to attending any first aid course (open or onsite) and must be brought with them on the day.  Failure to do this may result in refusal of course attendance;
  • All students must wear face masks and gloves, unless they are sitting down (with at least the current 2m social distancing);
  • Sufficient hand sanitizer, masks and gloves are provided - also eye glasses and disposable aprons are available if delegates wish to use them;
  • All CPR is undertaken using pocket masks with single per use disposable filters.  Mannikin surfaces must also be wiped thoroughly with surface wipes after each usage;
  • Each student is issued with individual first aid kits with unopened dressings and bandages.  Where possible they will apply these to themselves - however where close contact is necessary (e.g. during competency assessment), then PPE must be worn;
  • All single use equipment must be disposed of appropriately.  All re-useable equipment (e.g. pocket masks) are re-steralised using our uv-c steriliser.
