First aid exercise with realistic wound

Initial Training

During initial training, all cadets will complete an essential first aid qualification that covers:

  • Primary Survey
  • Chest Pain
  • Recovery Position
  • Resuscitation
  • Choking
  • Bleeding

Further Training

Cadets can then progress through a complete syllabus:

  • Youth First Aid
  • Activity First Aid
  • Instructor First Aid

Each level up contains new areas of first aid and allows cadets to build up their skills and eventually start instructing first aid to other cadets within Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
