    Well I am glad that is over. I have just passed my First Aid refresher exam. They still cram a lot of information into you in Two days. Now I hope I don,t need to put into practice what I have learnt.

    Well done Ed. It's a great skill to have. Hopefully you'll never have to use it.

    The company I work for have all their staff trained in first aid.
    I took my refresher back in January. Only had one emergency to deal with so far!!
    It was a bit scary!!
    But he survived to live another day

    I think it's a good idea to know, but hope I don't have to use it to often.

    I have selfishly done it more for me and my family as my dad is "well not a spring chicken" nor getting any younger. Rather than for the firm. You might think I am being Mercanary. As the firm I work for does not give you any renumeration (extra pay) for putting yourself on the line. Where you MIGHT have the resposibility to save a work mates life. I would save his life for free, NO problem there ( as I would for any one who needed my help). But a lot of my mates and even those who have previously "passed" as a first aider ( though refuse to go on a frfresher course). Decline to be a first aider as this firm seems to take us for granted. Sad really, as all the others on my course ( my other work mates excluded) Get some "paid" for the responsibility.

    Tell you what though. whilst they give me nothing for doing the course. I/ we did get as much coffee/tea to drink and as much food to eat as we could "stuff" into our faces. BUT well in my case ( and I dare say all the others) we were too nervous to eat too much. I would have not eaten any biskuits if they were put in front on me. I would say That I probably have lost a little weight over the last Two days. Any one who has been in a similar position would agree with me.
    I should have taken a "Doggy bag" with me. To get my fill later.

    We do not get paid any extra either, It's just one of the many courses we have to do. But it is good to know that I am not the only one trained on site, (unless I am lone working!! ) that is able to help too.
    But the same as you, where family and friends are concerned it's a good thing to know.

    Reminds me of the time at my previous workplace where a rather large girl twisted her ankle. We helped her to the first aid room and called the first aider, who took a good look at her ankle and said "Ooh...it is quite swollen isn't it?". "It's the other ankle that's hurt!" she growled at him.

    True story.
