As director of Simply First Aid, Piers Osborne has taken on this exciting role after years of preparation. Having started in the leisure industry, working with children and babies, he moved to education where he spent 9 years lecturing on a range of further, higher and community education courses for the Sports, Early Years and Community Studies departments.
He left this role to get out of the class room and into informal education through outdoor activities.
Almost since it’s inception Piers has been a member of Cornwall Search and Rescue Team helping to prepare it’s medics as the Medical Training Officer. He had the privilege to work with some extraordinary people until a relocation forced him to step down. He was also a member of Metropolitan Caloundra Surf Lifesaving Club and Watergate Bay Surf Lifesaving Club and an active member of the Scout Movement.
As well as specialising in outdoor and wilderness first aid he continues to specialise in paediatric first aid and education.
Over the years Piers has worked with a number of First Aid training providers, including the Red Cross, Royal Life Saving Society and St John Ambulance, to deliver First Aid and Casualty Care across Europe and Australia.
With a background in emergency medical response, security solutions and both pool and beach lifeguarding, Dom was a perfect choice for Simply First Aid!
He has over 15 years experience and was responsible for the Metropolitan Caloundra beaches for a number of years. During this time Dom was responsible for the ongoing development of all the beach personnel. As such he wrote and delivered bespoke training solutions and linked training to the Australian Professional Ocean Lifeguards Association scheme.
Dom provides our Quality Assurance and continues to deliver training when required. He is as comfortable behind a desk as he is being lowered into shark infested seas from a rescue helicopter!
He has long since left the world of lifeguarding behind and now provides both medical and security solutions for mine sites, race meets and the like.
Dom has recently been to conferences on the East and West Coasts of America in order to secure opportunities for the ‘Event Medics‘ side of the business.
He has competed in the Australian Open Iron Man, his 3rd ever triathlon, and was an elite cyclist. When not training, you’ll find him spending time with his family and ‘staying salty’!
Adrian Sevume Kauma
Adrian Sevume Kauma (SK) is an eccentric trainer who has a strong passion for first aid.
His first experience in doing CPR (on his daughter) has inspired him to teach many people in first aid and he aspires to make a difference in people's lives through the means of first aid.
He teaches our portfolio of workplace first aid courses and enjoys delivering our schools programme to large groups.
Adrian is known for being an "Awesome trainer" as he enjoys using the word "Awesome" or "Awesomness!" throughout his sessions (He does not know that it is not even a word, so when you see him just humour him).
He uses anecdotes, stories and his own experiences in his training to make first aid easy, practical and fun.
