First Aid Training is an important part of our syllabus and is available for all our staff and cadets. Our squadron aim to equip our personnel with vital skills and knowledge to be good citizens, but equally the need to equip people with skills that can be used when things go wrong.
All cadets and staff are required to undertake First Aid Training as part of their ongoing development. All cadets can undertake the British Heart Foundations Heart Start award, a 2 hour introduction into Emergency Life Support. All cadets have the opportunity to undertake the St John Ambulance Youth First Aid course, similar to those undertaken by adult staff.
First Aid Training is an essential skill and works towards the aim of providing skills of good citizenship and given the nature of the activities we undertake, it is essential that all our staff and cadets have the vital skills to deal with an emergency.
