Activity First Aid (Silver badge)

Last weekend, Cadet Warrant Officer (CWO) Sanders and Flight Sergeant (FS) Hudson attended an activity first aid course at 2248 Rutland squadron. The course is accredited by St John's Ambulance and allows cadets and staff to instruct and assess the youth first aid qualification.

Over the weekend, candidates were taught subjects including bleeds, breaks, stings and heart attacks. After two days of learning, the candidates had to complete three assessments; consisting of an unconscious breathing casualty, CPR and a bleed.

Both CWO Sanders and FS Hudson successfully completed their assessments with only a few minor things to work on. FS Hudson said, "It was an intense course but I really enjoyed it, and I'm looking forward to teaching back at the squadron!"
