Please note we will have, or at least try to, a training session every month. Sessions may not appear on the site if we do not have a fixed venue or date. Please still contact us, we will add you to a waiting list and contact you as soon as we have spaces available. Again it doesn't matter where you are from. If you are able to offer us a venue, preferably on a Saturday morning, please also get in touch.
On Saturday 13th July 2013, six instructors were put through their paces by Training Supervisor Naomi Mildenhall. Naomi works as a Neighbourhood Warden in Thatcham and is also a Community Responder. The event saw instructors, many of whom already have first aid qualifications and/or teaching experience, testing their skills, both teaching and first aid with ongoing assessment and a final assessment to ensure they are all able to teach and perform first aid to the public.
