Shock you to life
Went to upgrade myself today by attending a CPR + AED course. This was conducted as part of the National Lifesaving Day at the Singapore Expo.
Been thinking of signing up for such a course for quite some time now especially since I have conducted programmes for the elderly on a few occasions. When I found out this course was free to NROC coaches, I jumped on the opportunity and grabbed it!
The course was fairly simple. It started with a quick run through of the CPR portion since I was already certified in Standard First Aid. The AED portion was very straight forward. In fact, the AED actually gives you audio instructions. You just listen and follow!
I would probably advise all coaches to take up this course and upgrade beyond the Standard/Basic First Aid requirements needed to be a coach.
