Testimonial
The guys had a great morning today with the lovely ladies from Resus. We had two groups of nine with 2-3 first aiders in each group, the ladies then went on to explain DRSABCD and then on to two scenarios involving trauma and a collapse, whilst telling us some interesting stories.

The environment that we did it in was great as subbies and other workers were still working in the area so it made it a real world scenario with distractions you would have before the hooter is sounded.The guys had nothing but great feedback and praise towards the training and everyone learnt some valuable tools to use in the event that we have an accident on site that requires some first aid. More so now that everyone has had a chance to learn and not just the guys put on the normal first aid courses.

Another point the guys made was the benefits of having the training outdoors and onsite rather than in a air conditioned class room with all the paper work which not everyone learns easily from.

The ladies did talk about a certificate they could give out to those that attended and we could file that under everyone's competency records.

All in all very beneficial for the guys and anyone working at the hospice and for those out of work scenarios where we need some knowledge on first aid.
