Here are the training courses that we will be putting on in the coming months.
If you need more detail, please do get in touch
Organisers course (10am -1pm) 9th November
First Aid (1.30pm – 5.30 pm) 9th December
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.
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.
Although aimed at orienteers this course is a great introductory course for all.
Introduction to Orienteering (3 hours) Provisional date January 2020
We organised an ‘Introduction to Orienteering’ course in 2019 and it was well received. Therefore we shall be repeating it in the new year.
Once again we will be looking for a mix of those who know very little about the sport and those who have been taking part for some time but feel they need to know more about it. All are welcome.
