How can I keep my first aid skills up to date during the COVID lockdown?

Many people are using the lockdown time to “improve” themselves- or at least that is what they tell us. But with face to face training courses currently not possible we have been asked by a few people: “how can I keep my first aid skills up to date during the COVID lockdown?”.

One answer is to keep an eye on our YouTube Channel, every week on Wednesday evening at 6pm UK time a new video is released.

The most recent film covered, “How to treat an open chest wound”, but we have covered a range of topics so far.

We have created that many that we have created a Playlist on YouTube called “COVID classroom”, including more traditional first aid topics such as dealing with a nosebleed or stopping someone choking .

Even when we return to face to face training, which we are doing in June for some of our clients with a high operational need, we intend to carry on with the weekly posts on YouTube. So if there is a first aid/medical subject you would like to see us cover- let us know.
