John Owen

John is an associate instructor for us with a background in all things outdoors. He currently works delivering a range of outdoor activities, ranging from traditional mountain-based ones to paddling. He is an active member of a Scottish Mountain Rescue Team and this informs the First Aid instruction that he does for us. He is a fully registered teacher and is involved in delivering the Duke of Edinburgh’s award.  He assists in the delivery of leadership training using the outdoors as a medium, although he is more often to be found delivering first aid courses for us at our Musselburgh base.
