Meet Your Instructor

Hi my name is Sandra Spier. I am an independent first aid instructor with MediTrain Ltd,  coming into my 12th Year with them. I trade as MediTrain Central Plateau. I have a nursing back ground and am a retired Paramedic. I was a front line Paramedic with St. John for 14 years covering Waiouru and Central Plateau.


I have a great passion for teaching first aid, and get great satisfaction when the students achieve their qualification.


I cover from Taumarunui across to Taupo, Turangi, Taihape down as far as Palmerston North and Wanganui . I travel to people in remote areas, such as large sheep and dairy farms over the Gentle Annie (Taihape to Napier Road), these people are up to two hours away from medical assistance. I teach at schools, educating pupils, and their teachers. I teach Contractors, Tour Guides, Pool Life savers, HealthCare providers, Pre school educators, and many more.


I am flexible with days and times available that suit you.


My specialty is FREE FIRST AID CLASSES for Antenatal, Postnatal, Senior Citizens,  Kaumatua’s, and primary school age children.


Many thanks

Sandra Spier
