Students First Aid Success

Ten students from Nailsea School have successfully taken part in an Emergency First Aid at Work training course.  The Sixth Form students, learnt how to deal with an emergency situation and what the role of a First Aider was.

They learnt how to deal with burns, choking and how to use a defibrillator as well as managing patients coping with seizures, shock and bleeding as well as other emergency skills.

As part of the course, students also learnt the resuscitation technique (CPR) practising on a Resusci- Anne doll.

The training was undertaken by in-house expert Mr Perry who trained to teach the course in 2016. Students were invited to attend the course on a voluntary basis during the Easter holiday as an opportunity to help expand their CV.

Operations Manager Mr. Perry said “I am impressed by the commitment of the students, First Aid training is a very useful skill, not only in the workplace but wherever a situation might occur”

All ten students completed the course and (pictured here) received their certificates.
