FIRST AID
in the Air Training Corps
____________________

First Aid is obviously a vital skill, and from 2006 the ATC has introduced a formal qualification to recognise this.  Working in conjunction with St John Ambulance Service, the ATC now offers cadets the opportunity to gain the St John Ambulance Young LifeSaver Plus award (see the badge shown on right).  The badge is green for those cadets whom are aged 16 plus.

Cadets will have received fourteen hours of first aid training, culminating in a practical assessment.  At 2187 Squadron, not only are we fortunate to have an Ambulance Service Paramedic team leader as a member of staff, but also other staff whom are first aid assessors and trainers.

You can see from the photos on this page, that cadets have come across simulated wounds with fake blood and broken bones - it all adds to the realism that makes for good training!
