A Police Officer for over twenty-six years, Craig has been involved in delivering pre-hospital medical intervention as an officer trained in firearms, public order, rope access and as the training officer with a Scottish Mountain Rescue Team.

Gathering his instructing and teaching qualifications in an array of disciplines throughout the years, he began to specialise in the provision of medical assistance, firstly as a direct result of the requirements of his work then through holding several National Governing Body awards and other outdoor and sports qualifications.

As a member of the Scottish Ambulance Service Community First Responder scheme he continues to hone his operational skills whilst being involved in a voluntary teaching and assessing role for the scheme.

A fully qualified and experienced multi-disciplined outdoors instructor Craig has led countless wilderness expeditions thought the UK and in Europe and this year sees him lead the first recorded Scottish ascent of a peak in the Himalaya.

His passion for rescue has taken him to Indonesia, Borneo and Nepal where he has led training for rescue organisations and voluntary groups.

Craig became a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society as a result of his work in Wildlife Crime and his international humanitarian training.
