I recently had the privilege of attending the First Aid in Office and Studio (FAOS) course conducted by Laura from Lazarus Training Ltd, and I must say it was an incredibly educational experience. The one-day program covered a wide array of crucial first aid topics, leaving me feeling well-prepared and confident in handling emergency situations.The course began with a comprehensive exploration of the 5-step assessment process, providing a systematic approach to evaluating emergency situations. Laura expertly guided us through this process, ensuring that we not only understood the steps but also knew how to apply them in real-life scenarios. The morning session passed by swiftly, thanks to the engaging and informative nature of the content.The afternoon delved into more specific areas, such as CPR techniques and handling various medical conditions. Laura's teaching style was not only informative but also comforting. Her ability to make the class feel at ease created an optimal learning environment, fostering active participation and engagement among the attendees.One highlight of the course was the hands-on experience, particularly the application of a tourniquet. This practical aspect added a valuable dimension to the learning process, allowing us to translate theoretical knowledge into practical skills. While the hands-on time with CPR techniques was beneficial, I would have appreciated even more time dedicated to this critical skill, as it is fundamental in many emergency situations.Post-course, the resources provided were noteworthy. The well-structured notes and the accompanying app proved to be valuable references, eliminating the need for extensive note-taking during the session. This thoughtful approach allowed participants to focus more on absorbing the lesson content and actively participating in discussions.In conclusion, I highly recommend the First Aid in Office and Studio course with Laura from Lazarus Training Ltd. Her expertise, coupled with the well-organized curriculum and hands-on experiences, ensures that participants not only grasp essential first aid concepts but also feel equipped to apply them effectively in real-world scenarios. The course strikes an excellent balance between theory and practice, making it a valuable investment for anyone seeking to enhance their first aid skills.
