Revisit how to notice when an individual may need an ambulance or a first aider and how to recognise life threatening conditions.

What are the roles of a first aider? What are the aims of a first aider? How do you minimise infection in the workplace? What is in a first aid kit and what is not? How is CPR performed differently for children to adults? What are the causes of unconsciousness? How is The Recovery Position performed differently to children/ infants and adults? How to treat a bleed? How to determine what a minor injury is?  What are the types of fractures? What is an accident book?

Our First Aid Awareness and Refresher course will help you to answer the questions above and more.

Through our First Aid Awareness and Refresher course, you will gain an understanding of what the chain of survival is and how this is involved with being a first aider. You will learn the different acronyms that are used in first aid which are DRABC, AED, FISH, SHAPED, AVPU, SCALD and BE FAST and which condition or aid they refer to. You will learn how to aid an individual if they have vomited during resuscitation. You will also learn the do’s and do not’s when aiding an individual that is unconscious.
