Exeter CTC - First Aid Courses

Wednesday 23 April 2014, 18:00-21:00 or

Thursday 1 May April 2014, 18:00-21:00

We held a First Aid Course two years ago. One problem was that the course covered very general topics and there was very little material directly relevant to the types of incidents we face as cyclists.

This time Matt Upston, who is an Outdoor and Mountain Bike First Aid Trainer, will be delivering the course. We have decided to have two custom 2½ - 3 hour courses - in the evening to allow 'workers' to attend. Each course will have 10 or less participants.

Jan and Keith Portlock have very kindly offered to host the courses at their house near Ottery.

We will focus on just a small number of relevant topics ...

Topic Frequency Comment
action at an incident many! include
treatment and control of bleeding 20 include
treatment of injuries to bones, muscles and joints 6 include
treatment of bites and stings 4 include
casualty resuscitation (CPR) 0 include
recognition and treatment of shock 1 possibly

The timetable will be

18:00 Start Session
19:30 Coffee/tea break
21:00 Finish Session
