Every course we run here at BOLD is unique and ALL have tangible outcomes and as well as meeting many goals they also fulfil the criteria for the DofE Residential Section. The First Aid at Work Qualification is perfect for budding individuals with a passion for helping others and being prepared for anything, the course comes with a recognised level 3 certificate which can help you secure work roles either part or full time. Most employment opportunities require staff to have a relevant First Aid qualification.
We always say to groups once they have done the course it seems to throw up opportunities to get involved and use your new gained skills, our courses promote self-esteem, and enable attendees to assess, support and assist potential casualties with a calm and confident sense of composed urgency and professional purpose.
The learning is intense and to ease assimilation it is delivered in bite size chunks. Followed by plenty of opportunities to embed the theory with practical windows where attendees can have feedback and encouragement from their peers and the delivery instructor.
The 2 days of literally intense learning (made easier), with handouts and sublime teaching style culminate on the 3rd learning day with a scenario based high tempo and highly impactful, array of situations and casualties which are designed to build up in difficulty and complexity with ever increasing injuries and volume of casualties. This exercise is intended to stretch attendees so they achieve and continue learning throughout!
By that stage of the course it is really inspiring to see how far the attendees have come and how much they have learned and progressed over the days of study!
The standard of their skills is quite remarkable and they never fail to impress us in one way or another!
