First Aid

Through the Air Cadets you have the opportunity to learn the various aspects of first aid. Everyone is taught 'Heart Start' which is backed by the British Heart Foundation. This covers basic CPR & the recovery position as well as choking and cuts. This will be taught locally on the squadron. You can then move on to more advanced qualifications such as Youth First Aider which entitles you to wear a red badge and covers First Aid in greater details. If you are over 16 you can also do a first aid at work course over a weekend, which will gain you a nationally recognised 'First Aid At Work' qualification and also enables you to wear a green badge on your brassard.
