“I just wanted to send a quick thank you to the trainer who ran the course First Aid for Infants and children that I attended. I found this course very useful and I came away hoping that I would be confident to use first aid in an emergency. Little did I know that my first casualty would be only a couple of days later when we were away on school camp and we got woken in the middle of the night by a fire alarm? During the confusion, one of the teachers fell badly down the stairs (she happened to be our official first aider!) I amazed myself by taking charge of the situation, I remembered everything from the course, I did the necessary first aid and then got her to A&E. If I hadn’t have attended the course then the injured teacher may have suffered a lot more”
