I have never had to use the methods taught
The practical test is a little nerve racking!
I attended a First Aid Course as an employee for a big supermarket chain. I really enjoyed the 3 day course which was all practical work. At first I expected to be stuck behind a desk all day, but it was not at all as I imagined. You get a book at the start of the course that you can keep and continually refresh yourself if need be. We covered chocking, heart attacks, car / train crashes, eyes and teeth falling out, head injuries, broken bones - nearly every eventuality! The good thing was on day 3, we had a role play where we were split into teams, one had to create a crash of some sort by dressing up and using fake blood and body parts. The other team had to demonstrate how to deliver first aid to the injured etc.
The course is fun, informative and well worth taking. First aid certificates last I think for 3 years so I am looking now to go on a refresher course!
