Our Team

The Polaris senior instructor team is made up of 5 trainers who are all currently working in the operational rescue environment.

The skills, knowledge and practical experience gathered by our instructors plays a key role in and forms the basis of all Polaris courses.  This invaluable experience is matched by our excellent training facilities, where we can create realistic scenario based training so our students can put into practice what they have learned.
