First Aid Teaching & Learning

Our 3-day First Aid Teaching and Learning course is aimed at all those who are looking to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to deliver Aviation First Aid Training for Cabin Crew and Flight Crew.

Course Overview

The course covers the requirements of CAA/EASA Implementing Rules, and current First Aid protocols from the UK and European Resuscitation Councils.

The course prepares instructors to train aircrew to confidently and effectively manage life-threatening first aid emergencies before medical professionals arrive. Procedures are adapted to suit an aviation environment, either within the flight, during ground operations or post evacuation survival.

The course uses a range of teaching approaches including classroom instruction, practical activity, group discussion, simulations and delegate micro-teach sessions. Knowledge ad skills are assessed through observation of training sessions and a questionnaire on day 3.

Delegates are also required to demonstrate competency in cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (using a manikin), recovery position and choking treatment.

The cost of this course is £655 +VAT
