The Team

All the staff at Aid Training & Operations Ltd are selected because of their unique blend of operational and training experience. You can rest assured that if they are delivering your training it will be based on “real life” experience and made fun, relevant and interesting. Our trainers all hold recognised teaching and assessing qualifications, including City and Guilds 7303 and A1. Our training is backed up by a great office team.

Paul Hosking - Managing Director

I spent sixteen years in the Royal Marines. Leaving in 1999 I set up Aid Training & Operations Ltd. The company works in many specialist areas and now enjoys international success. One of our areas of expertise is Hostile Environments. I have personally assisted, supported and trained numerous organisations in places such as Gaza, Afghanistan, Israel, Singapore, Argentina, Mexico, Bosnia, Honduras to name but a few! I’m married to a Debi Bell, a freelance Producer/Editor who has worked for Reuters and AP. Although I don’t get as actively involved in the training as much as I would like to any more I do oversee it and occasionally get the opportunity to get my “hands dirty”.


Pete Scotland - Lead Tutor

Since 2000 I have been constantly involved with assisting organisations to prepare their staff for work in Hostile Environments. The organisations I have been involved with include the world’s media, Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Contractors working with the British MOD and companies with major operations abroad. I have worked with management to identify hazards, risks and subsequent training needs. In addition to delivering training I have advised management on the construction of Policy and Plans to ensure robust and realistic procedures to prepare staff for their work in Hostile Environments and organisations to respond effectively to incidents. I have worked as an adviser on Safety and Security to a major NGO that involved conducting surveys of ‘in country’ operations to identify strengths, weaknesses and recommendations for improvement. Additionally, I was employed as the Security Adviser to a major media group in Iraq. Prior to 2000 I served a full career in the Royal Marines, seeing service in conflict, both high and low intensity and operations in extremes of climate and terrain.


Graham Freeman - West Africa Lead Tutor

I served in the British Army for 10 years operating worldwide during this period. Since leaving the armed forces I have worked within the British security and health and safety industry for over a decade. More recently I have graduated from Leicester University where I achieved a degree in Security and Risk Management. I now live and work in Ghana and head up the Aid Operations West Africa training centre.


Hamish Finley

During my service in the Royal Marines I saw active service in a variety of locations from South America to Iraq, upon leaving the Marines I worked in the area of security / safety management operating and conducting training in hostile environments for blue chip companies, the media and multinational government organisations. In the intervening period before coming on full time with Aid in 2009 I have attained a variety of civilian qualifications which have enhanced my knowledge and the training delivered: including Medicine in Remote Area (MIRA) Medics course, CTTLS Certificate in Teaching, A1 Assessors, and C&G 1886 and NEBOSH General Certificate. My responsibilities include coordinating of the personal safety / physical intervention syllabus and training the variety of OSSFAT courses.


Ria Stewart

Ria is a Registered General Nurse with both the Royal Navy and NHS. She tutors certain specific medical elements on the courses.


Rob Turner

Rob spent 29 years in the Royal Marines and is a highly qualified and experienced instructor. He has a vast experience of both remote and hostile environments and is a specialist in working in cold climates.


Trev Hazzell

I joined the Royal Army Medical Corps in 1979 and served in various roles around the world on attachment with different regiments, including UKSF which included Central America, Far East, The Caribbean and Europe in both hostile and non-hostile environments as a Combat Medical technician. Since leaving in April 2003 I have been training and providing medical cover as part of the Aid Operations team in various parts of the world including Afghanistan, Gaza and Israel.


Rob Tomkinson

I joined the military in 1980 and served with the RAF Regiment for 17years. During this time I completed operational tours of Northern Ireland, Cyprus, the Gulf war and the former Yugoslavia, both as part of NATO and UN led forces. During my service I started my training in combat and advanced emergency medicine, completing RMA training with the Royal Army Medical Corps. I have also completed Patrol Medic training with the ILRRPS in Germany. On completion of this I attended Humanitarian Aid Advisors Courses. On leaving in 1997 I joined the ambulance service, qualifying as a State Registered (HPC) Paramedic in 2000. Since then I have gone on to study at Hertfordshire University gaining my degree in Paramedic Science. I am also qualified in Remote Medicine. I am now a qualified Paramedic Instructor (IHCD). I am still an active operational paramedic operating as a rapid responder /operational supervisor. Since 2006 I have been a lead first aid instructor with Aid Training teaching all levels of emergency first aid but specialising in IHCD FPOS and Instructor courses both in the UK and abroad.
