REC Advanced Course (2 Days)
The advanced 2 day REC course aims to make candidates competent and confident in the basic principles of first aid whilst also introducing more advanced casualty management with a focus on remote first aid.
The course is taught using demonstration, multimedia, practicals and discussion. It is intensive but using REC’s philosophy of teaching it also is a lot of fun. The first day will also include an evening, very real life scenario, set up for the candidates using advanced equipment.
This course is ideal for candidates who are looking for something that provides more than just your basics. Great for people who repetitively complete first aid courses for work and play or for those who like that added extra information on all subjects.
Pre-requisites : 2 day REC Emergency first aid course
Outline of syllabus:
This intensive 2 day course will equip you to deal confidently with an ill or injured person for a prolonged amount of time. The emphasis of this course is based around vital signs and their accurate documentation, which is the human meter for how well a person is. With this information the first aider is therefore able to assess their casualty competently and be able to react according to the casualties needs.
You will not be a medic after the 2 days, however you should be able to handle a casualty responding to their needs and improvising if necessary, rather than just acting out learnt techniques.
