New dates for First Aid training announced!

PAMIS have launched 6 new dates for First Aid training (with profound and multiple learning disabilities specific information) across 5 locations.

There are now four Emergency First Aid at Work courses available to book, all with a PMLD focus. These are on day courses and will be running in Dundee, Glasgow, Kirkcaldy and Aberdeen. These one -day courses are priced at £95 (plus booking fee if booked through Eventbrite).

The course is the accredited Emergency First Aid at Work course, and as such stands on it’s own. The PMLD element comes into adapting first aid to the particular needs of people who have a PMLD, so we pay additional regard to CPR when someone has a compromised body shape, epilepsy management, postural care, and airway management.

You will gain an award in Emergency First Aid at Work at SCQF Level 6. You will also receive AED training- Automated External Defibrilator.

A range of subjects are covered including:

Responsibilities and reporting
Assessment of the situation
Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
Basic hygiene in First Aid
Burns
Epilepsy
Resuscitation
Anatomy
Minor injuries
Bleeding control
Choking
Shock

Specialist input to include the needs of people who have profound and multiple disabilities and complex health needs.

This course is hugely beneficial for:

  • People who are involved in the day to day care of individuals who have a profound and multiple disability.
    People who are involved in caring for individuals who have disabilities.
    People who need to hold the Award in Emergency First Aid at Work at SCQF Level 6
