Remember first aid courses are only valid for 3 years and some things/techniques change.
We now have a standard operating procedure that requires that all instructors and safety supervisors have (amongst other things) a current Emergency First Aid certificate to PHECC (Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council) standard.
This is your chance to avail of such a course and for those unpaid volunteers either adult or youth who assist as instructors or safety supervisors you can get a 50% discount off the course fee!
Places are limited so please return completed application forms with relevant remittance asap to guarantee your place.
Hard copies of the application form are available from Donal O'Scanaill in An Siopa Deas, Clifden if you can't print off the attached.
