First Aid Course Venue

Postby Squeaky » Fri Jun 23, 2006 7:24 pm | #1

Hi everyone!

We will be holding a first aid course in Cardiff in November (hope you all attend!). Only trouble is, we are still looking for a venue! It's going to be on Saturday November 25th.

Here are the requirements:
We will need 4 hours, bit longer wouldn't hurt if possible. The room needs to have seats as there is talking, but space (possibly by moving seats) for people to practise Recovery position etc. We will also neeed a wall / screen to run a power point presentation.

If any of you know of anywhere that would be suitable can you please post here, PM me or email me vkidgell@gmail.com that would be much appreciated! Also if you could get a phone number too and approx price that would be extra good! :)

A beer and a big smooch is up for grabs for whoever helps me! :flirt:

I don't know Cardiff at all, so any help really is much appreciated! Thank you!

there's loads of place where we could hold it, could see if UWIC has a space class room or something along those lines. i'll have a word with the other and see if they have any ideas.

who's going to be running the course?

i don't know if this is too late but the QED centre on treforest industrial estate should suit you needs perfectly. it is just north of Cardiff and has easy access and plenty of parking.(and a pub next door) They have digital projectors and screens available too.
i don't know how much they charge for room hire tho.

you can contact them on 01443 845512 for more information.

Hire out an indoor court at the Heath Park Sports and Social Club. I Vaguely recall their prices being quite reasonable

Ideally what we need is a lecture hall or class room on uni grouns so that the club couldbook it and pay minimal / zero charge.

The Sports and Social club is discounted to students. That's why I thought of it.

That reminds me....I've been meaning to ask how often we need to go on a first aid course?

Virtually all 1st aid certificates last three years. Be aware, though that the ratio and sequence for CPR changed radically this year

TJF dont have an official requal date since were not recognised teachers (unlike St johns etc)  although we do recommened every 3 years.
NB if you have a valid first aid cert you dont have to attend a TJF course.



All the new protocols (inc CPR sequence etc) should be included in the TJF courses taught from Sept. if everything goes to plan that is.

We will therefore be encouraging everyone to re-attend a course this year.

How exactly does this work then?

If you're TJF (not St John Ambo) trained in 1st aid and something nasty happens to the poor sod you're treating while waiting for the ambulances to come, would you be legally liable?

Sounds very very dodgy...
