Banyule District First Aid Courses

FristAid

WHEN: Thursday 8th May or Thursday 17th July, both 7pm sharp start!
WHERE: Banyule District hall, Turnham Avenue Rosanna
(Station Street end, near the tennis courts)
CONTACT: Anthony Evans, dlats.banyule@vicscouts.asn.au
COST: Cost for CPR refresher c.$50 per person, Level 2 first aid c.$110 per person
Discounted if more than 20 people participate each night. Each group will be required to pay once numbers are finalised.

The courses will be open to older Youth members (13 – 14+), leaders and families connected to Scouting in the District. All first aid training is linked to accredited units of competence and is delivered by Revive 2 Survive (a Private RTO). As to what course you plan to undertake and your preferred date; first in – best dressed! A minimum of 8 participants on each night to undertake Level 2 first aid, so there may be a cap on CPR refresher numbers. The aim is for 22 people in each course.

The course is in two parts;
* The first two hours address CPR refresher (HLTAID001 Provide CPR). This is recommended annually for those that have completed first aid training.
* If you want to complete a Level 2 qualification (HLTAID003 Provide First Aid), you will stay on for another 1 ½ hours. Assessment will be via completion of in-session activities and a test which is mailed directly to Revive 2 Survive.

For first aid training to appear on your Scouting record, you will need to arrange for a copy of your statement to be certified and mailed / emailed to the Western Scout centre.
