Most of the time the first person to intervene in the event of an accident is not an emergency medical technician but an ordinary person and that is why it is of vital importance that the first rescuer is able to adequately and quick operate with a minimum of competence.

The course aims to prepare non-health workers for the first aid in emergency, because could be the first witnesses of critical health events.
    For example: police officers, firefighters, workers from large commercial and industrial complexes, sports facility operators and operators (military and non-military) civil protection services and port authorities, public and private transport service workers, teaching and non-teaching staff in public and private schools, etc.

Who holds the training


Teacher and trainer for cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and first aid

Hi, I’m Denis .. Born in Verona on May 1st 1983, but I grew up in the Lake Garda area.

I met Marco Heltai on the occasion of the “Adigemarathon 2012” event, for the coordination of safety in the river. In fact, since 2006 I have been a teacher and trainer for cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and management of first aid in rivers, lakes and seas, drowning and first aid, anatomy and physiology of the human body, salvage recovery techniques, meteorology, recreational boating and assistance at sea, professional rescue in hostile and alluvial environments.
I worked for many years in the National Rescue Society, certifying me in all its activities up to the maximum level of instructor I.A.Ma.s (Rescue Instructor and Marine Arts).

From that moment on, I went on to join the Xadventure team, as a trainer for the lay staff on cardio-pulmonary resuscitation maneuvers using an external semi-automated medical device (DAE). So much so that Xadventure team has become one of the Reference Centers for training in the subject both locally and provincial as well as Regional.

Being a nurse since 2011, together with my mentor Marco Heltai I deal with Prevention and Training on safety and first aid within Xadventure as per DM 81/2008 and its modifications, Training in hostile environment and aquatic environments for the College Alpine Guides of Trento.

Our Training Activity is nationally recognized by I.R.C (Italian Resuscitation Council) and by C.R.E.U (Regional Emergency Center) of the Veneto Region sec. the D.M 4282/09 for the courses concerning the cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and the early defibrillation (BLS-D) and the trauma management according to PTC-I.R.C guidelines.

When I find the time, being very busy, and having a family, I love being able to practice outdoor activities that offers this fantastic group. having approached Canyoning for some years, I try to pursue this great passion, trying to learn more and more, having fun.
