Emergency first aid training course

Wednesday 4 April 2018, 9:30-11:30am

Kensington Town Hall, committee room 5

SOLD OUT: As the first aid training course that the London Ambulance Service held for us in November 2017 was sold out within a couple of days, we decided to hold it again in April. Unfortunately, this course has been sold out almost as quickly. We are now looking into the possibility of arranging a third course, perhaps in the autumn. In the meantime, you can read here what it’s about.

Would you know what to do if someone had a cardiac arrest, stopped breathing, had a major bleeding or was choking?

The course, which lasts for two hours, teaches basic life-support skills so that you can manage until the ambulance staff arrive. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the training session.

You will learn:

• Possible causes of cardiac and respiratory arrest

• What happens to the body during cardiac arrest

• How to recognise and manage a heart attack

• How to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

• Putting someone into the recovery position

• Treating major bleeding and adult choking

• Defibrillator familiarisation

The number of places on this course is limited to 15, in order to give everyone a chance to practice on a dummy, so book as quickly as possible.

Kensington Society members £10, non-members £15
