All orienteering events must have a designated qualified First Aid officer and this 4 hour course is practically based and will be presented by a qualified First Aid Tutor. Although aimed at orienteers,this is a great introductory course for all.
Our tutor will be Flora Schneider who has been presenting this course and the 14 hour first aid course to Orienteers for many years.
Those of you who did this course in 2016 should remember that a First Aid qualification is only valid for 3 years and so this is an ideal opportunity to renew that qualification.
And of course we will welcome those who have never attended a First Aid course to join us.
The course covers a systematic approach to incident management, vital signs, unresponsive casualties, safe airway/recovery position, CPR (adult, child & drowning), choking, heart attacks, bleeding & shock.
There is continual assessment by trainer observation.
The cost to individuals will be £20 and this cost has been subsidised by the club.
