The syllabus included:

– Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation on an Adult, Child and an Infant under 1 year of age.

– Action for Vomiting, and the Recovery position.

– The use of the Automated External Defibrillator

– Bleeding – types of bleeding, and the treatment of a bleed

– Fainting – Full Faint Treatment

– Diabetes – types of Diabetes, and the treatment of Diabetes

– Epilepsy – Treatment for Epilepsy

Well done to everyone who completed the course- we hope it will be a useful addition to everyone’s CV and that all students will have learnt some very valuable first aid skills.
