James Russell

Hi there, I’m James. I’m part owner and trainer with Dundee First Aid Training. Along with Chris, we decided to enter in to the business world after years of teaching/assessing first aid. 

I have been doing first aid since 2005 and ventured into the training side of things after qualifying as a Lifeguard trainer/assessor in 2013. In 2015 I then moved into delivering first aid courses through Leisure and Culture Dundee where I was employed from 2009 until I left for a new venture in 2019. 

I currently work full-time as a Firefighter with Scottish Fire and Rescue Service where I’ve picked up some more trauma based training. 

In March 2022, Chris and I set this up to deliver our own first aid courses and will look to progress our training as we find our feet. 

On a personal note, I’m a keen footballer and still play (just), I have two kids, Ben 15 and Ruby who is two. I’m married to Carly and we have a Scottish Terrier named Harry.

Remember, it’s better to have the knowledge and not need it! So book up!

At only 16 years old, back in July 2003 I qualified as a National Pool Lifeguard having passed all the first aid and water-based assessments having just left school. Little did I know I would spend the next 10 years working my way through the leisure industry gaining a vast amount of experience which has ultimately lead to me to starting Dundee First Aid Training.

In 2010, I qualified as a National Pool Lifeguard Trainer / Assessor and was part of a team responsible for the training and assessment of new Lifeguards and the delivery of the staff training programme for the current Lifeguards employed with Dundee City Council.

Throughout my time working within the leisure centre, I further qualified as a level 2 Gym Instructor which has massively benefited with the next part of my journey in to the First Aid Training world.

In 2013, I qualified as a First Aid Trainer / Assessor and continued to work for Dundee City Council and again was part of a team responsible for delivering First Aid Training courses to Dundee City Council employees from various departments within the council.

During this time, I gained the SQA qualification in Planning and Delivering Training Sessions to groups along with several additional qualifications which allowed me to teach the safe use of an automated external defibrillator (AED).

In my spare time, I coach my sons football team, Dundee West 2013’s and I am currently working my way through my coaching badges.

I am a very friendly, laid-back trainer who loves a practical joke or 2 which I’m sure you will find out if you book a course with us 😊
