Damien Santer is an ALS certified paramedical practitioner and educator.
Having spent the better part of twenty years in the boardroom running technology and management consulting firms, Damien went back to school to achieve his Diploma in Paramedical Science with the mission of driving awareness of the importance of high quality first aid and pre-hospital emergency medicine in the developing world.
In the early 2000’s, Damien was a member and trainer of a multidisciplinary rescue unit in regional NSW, providing vertical, road crash and flood rescue, storm damage support, first aid, general rescue and search and rescue. He was also a NSW State Rescue Board Accredited Operator.

He is a Wilderness First Responder with Wilderness Medical Associates and has qualifications in both technical rope rescue and white-water rescue.

BMedSc, BHlthSc (Hons), MD.
Dr Shaliza Manmohan was conferred the degrees of Bachelor of Biomedical Science,
Bachelor of Health Science (Hons) and Doctor of Medicine (MD) by the University of Adelaide, Australia, and Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine in collaboration with Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
Her lifelong journey of learning that lead her to the practice of medicine also piqued her interest in education and advocation. Having trained in Emergency Medicine in Borneo Malaysia and practiced through the first half of the pandemic, Shaliza became acutely aware of the low awareness of pre-hospital care in the community, especially in emergency situations. Making the decision to leave public practice, Shaliza joined X3SI with the mission of improving the quality of pre-hospital education and care in the region, creating more awareness of the importance of first aid and prehospital care in communities, and empowering the general public to help reduce the impact of potentially life threatening emergencies that they might come across in their every day lives.
“Being a doctor isn’t just about the hands-on saving of lives, equally important is the raising of awareness and sharing of knowledge beyond the walls of the hospital, that will save or improve the lives of many.”
Shaliza teaches First Aid and Austere & Emergency Medicine for AEMED International and serves on the AEMED Curriculum Advisory Committee.
