Marcus launched his own first aid training business in February 2016, following in his father’s footsteps. His dad was a paramedic for the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) in Toowoomba who later became one of only three paramedic educators in Queensland. When he left the QAS, he started his own training organisation.
After first qualifying as an electrician, Marcus later joined the Queensland Ambulance Service as a student paramedic but always had the passion to be a trainer. He began by helping in his father’s business, loving every minute and getting great feedback.
From the outset he delighted in shaking things up a little, dispelling perceptions that first aid training had to be drawn out and boring. This ethos is at the heart of Certo’s trademark fresh approach, ensuring every First Aid & CPR course is always fun, practical and highly effective.
