On Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th March I attend a first aid course at 148 (Barnsley) squadron, with some others from 148 and a Corporal Tom Pledger from 370 (North Sheffield) squadron.

The first aid course is a two day course that teaches you about basics of first aid and how to treat someone with and injury. Also at the first aid course they do little scenario’s to make it fell like the real thing, also Sergeant Heppenstall pretended to be a 60 year old man called Albert which was hilarious watching him put on a voice and pretended to have a bad back and shoulder.

I am proud that me and the others passed, also to say that this first aid course has set me up for a real life situation’s, and I now know that I can confidently deal with anyone who needs first aid.
