E.F.A.A.W. & Fire saftey training
Emergency First Aid At Work;I arrived at the venue ten minutes early, to be greeted at the entrance by Nick Burton (the trainer). He was very warm and freindly,which allowed me to feel relaxed and elay any anxiety i may have had. Immediately, Nick asked some very gentle, open questions, taking particular intrest in previous knowledge and experience of care work and the principles of First Aid.Once settled Nick provided the group with some general "housekeeping", toilets, refreshments, exit points and what to do in the case of an emergency. Once all participants had arrived Nick done some quick Q & A, after which time we were all on the same page.The training started on-time and without hesitation or delay, any materials that were required for the duration were provided by LifeAid Training Services, including free tea, coffee and cold drinks.Throughout the training Nick would "check-in" with group, with particular mindfulness being given to anybody that felt they did not understand a component or concept being presented.The theory elements of the E.F.A.A.W training were delivered with effortless professionalism and a level of detail which only served to compliment and reinforce Nicks' dedication and commitment, not only to us as learners but to all first aiders who have had the privelige of learning from him.In relation to the practical elements of the E.F.A.A.W, we each had to be assessed performing resuscitation, working with one other learner to take it in turns demonstrating we would be able to perform this task in a emergency situation.Throughout, Nick would continue to "check-in" with the learners. Given the sensitive nature of this aspect of the training, we were all given the opportunity to share any prior "real-life" examples of when we may have had to provide resucitation in a emergency situation.In contrast to other trainers with whom I have learned from, Nick, by far provided learning opportunitues throughout that were, informative and relevant and instilled in me the confidence to provide emergency first-aid, should I happen to come across a situation where it is required.At the end of the training we were each given a test, to determine if we had taken on-board what we had learned. In light of the course content, the style of delivery and the breadth of Nicks First-Aid knowledge base, it was pleasing to see we all passed.(Post follow-up) Nick passed around his buisness card to the candidates and gave express permission to each of us that we could contact him in regards to first-aid qeuries we may have in the future. I have never had this happenn before and it just serves to reinforce Nicks ongoing commitment to his learners.Nick, I had a thoroughly enjoyable time and at no stage in the training did i find it, not relevant or boring and before I coukd blink the day had ended. Thank you.
