Communication and casualty care
Understanding and recognising allergic reactions
Unresponsive casualty treatment
Anaphylaxis is the most severe form of allergic reaction. Common causes are insect stings, foods, and some medications. It is life-threatening and requires immediate first aid (an auto-injector) and emergency medical assistance.
Someone in your school could have a severe allergy, as such this must form part of your first aid needs assessment.
Assessment and Certification
You will be continually assessed throughout the course by one of our qualified trainers.
The practical elements of this course are essential, as they provide you with vital hands-on experience. You must be physically able to take part in the practical parts of the course.
The HSE requires you to attend the full duration of the course, and candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2) to be eligible for evaluation.
On-site training room requirements
It is recommended that the room size should be approximately 20 x 30 feet for a full 12-person course. The room should be large enough to seat all candidates comfortably in a semicircle formation. The floor space in the centre should be clean and uncluttered, as this will be used for the practical parts of the course. The trainer will also require a flip chart if one is available.
