  • Completing a primary survey of a potential casualty including; checking for danger, checking for a response, opening airway, checking breathing, checking circulation and treating the steps as needed
  • Completing CPR
  • Using a Defibrillator

Participating in workshop has supported learners to develop their skills and knowledge in relation to First Aid which has also supported the development of their employability skills.
