About Me

Doris Fiander, owner and lead instructor of 3Silhouettes, is a certified Canadian Red Cross First Aid Instructor and has been teaching first aid classes with the Canadian Red Cross Niagara Branch since 2012.

In 2011 she joined the Canadian Red Cross as a volunteer and discovered a passion for serving others in her community.  Now, when she isn’t teaching a first aid class, or spending time with her family, you can find Doris at various emergency preparedness and safety events throughout Niagara, speaking to fellow residents about how to stay safe and be disaster ready.  For more information on how you can get involved with the Canadian Red Cross please visit http://www.redcross.ca/.

Testimonials

“I chose 3silhouettes because it was convenient times and also reasonably priced. I also liked that it was a more private class. I especially liked the tea and coffee set up for the morning! Well needed start to any morning class. It didn’t feel rushed in learning either. If you’re thinking about choosing this program I would highly suggest to say yes! I know I’ll be back for my recents :)”  Ashley R, Nursing Student, Brock University Standard First Aid-HCP, January 2015

“I selected training with 3Sihouettes because of the convenient training times, smaller class size and the  passion of the trainer for spreading the valuable life saving information to her community.  The instructor was aware of my specific learning style and gave the extra time to ensure that I really comprehended and understood the material.  The training 3Silhouettes offers is professional and passionate.  You will leave with a true understanding of First Aid and CPR and have the confidence to respond to someone in need.”  Kathy G, Career Counsellor, Standard First Aid-C, October 2014

“Doris is extremely knowledgeable in First Aid and answered any questions that we had. It is evident that she is very passionate about the well-being and safety of others and this comes through during training. Doris is warm and welcoming and eager to attend to any needs that participants had. I had taken a Standard Fist Aid course before, but I did not learn as much compared to when completing my certification with 3Silhouettes. The knowledge taken away from this course is incomparable.  With 3Silhouettes, you can ensure that you are receiving reputable training from a very knowledgeable personnel!”  Victoria L, Brock University Student, Standard First Aid-HCP, January 2015
