The course comprised of two days of training. The first day comprised of a question and answer workshop as well as talking about personal experiences. We talked about what should be included in a basic first aid kit and used our knowledge to see what we knew! The outcomes were very impressive.

The second day was hands-on practical with the use of a dummy to practice CPR as well as a simulated choking scenario. We also administered bandages as well as learning about the different medical equipment we may come across when working with adults and children. This included EPI-pens, asthma inhalers and diabetic insulin pens, just to name a few.
