Accidents Happen – First Aid for Everyday Injuries
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted this training course and moved it online.
During 4 1/2 hours, participants will learn basic skills to enable them to react quickly in a variety of situations when delivering First Aid to babies, children or adults. The training is packed full of information that is easy to understand and remember.
Topics covered include:
- Medical emergencies: a protocol to follow.
- What number to call in a medical emergency and what to say.
- Head injuries and suspected spinal injuries.
- Major blood loss and shock.
- Strains, sprains and broken bones.
- Cuts, grazes and nosebleeds.
- Accidental poisoning.
- Plus, what to have in your First Aid Kit and how to use it.
How the training will work:
To enable each participant to practice the First Aid techniques they will be taught, before the training, they will be posted the necessary bandages and slings. These will then be theirs to keep.
Participants will also receive a paper copy of our abbreviated course booklet with the main emergency protocols, medical phrases and emergency numbers.
The training will be delivered via Zoom and we ask for video to be enabled to allow maximum interaction and for the course trainer to assess practical exercises. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout the session.
If 2 participants in the same household who would usually have close physical/intimate contact are able to share training materials, then only 1 registration is needed. We cannot accept such a registration for more than 2 people.
