BDS North West First Aid Course dates 2015


Distinguished Member
BDS North West are very pleased to announce two, Emergency First Aid at Work courses to be held in 2015.

The courses will be run by Affinity Training Morecambe First Aid

The course dates are Saturday 9th May and Sunday 7th June 2015 and are limited to a maximum of 10 students per day.

The training will cover Emergency First Aid at Work with additional input and focus on dealing with potential injuries which may befall us while stalking - breaks, sprains, fractures, gunshot and cuts.

Subject to passing the test at the end of the days training, each student will receive an EFAaW Certificate which is valid for three years.

Many providers of stalking and stalking leases now request such qualification.

Each course will be a full day (approx 8 hrs including breaks) - there will be a simple meal of casserole or similar provided at lunch with tea, coffee and biscuits for breaks.

The cost is £45 per student - which is very competitive.

Details of the training venue (Morecambe, Lancashire) will be provided with confirmation of booking / payment.

Please contact me at the following email address for bookings and detail of where to send payment.

If there is sufficient demand, there may be scope to host further courses

The course is very worthwhile and compared to other EFAW courses advertised, extremely good value - and we feed you!!!

Appears very good value, is this an EFAW +
course, with appropriate certificate
is this equivalent to (or better than) EFAW + F,
should include crush, hypothermia , Lyme disease.

Thank you for the interest

The may course has now only a couple of spaces left, the June course a few more.

I have one on a waiting list who cannot make either date, if there is demand, we will put on more courses.

Thank you all for your interest.

Just for clarification

the course will be the one day Emergency First Aid at Work WITH added elements covering Severe Cuts, Crush Injuries, Hypothermia and Lyme Disease (Plus "F" in other words)

Students will, on successful completion be issued with and EFAW Certificate and a + F Certificate.

im sending out advice to all who have booked that we will require payment in advance - details will be in the email.

May course is now provisionally fully booked.

If there is sufficient demand, we will put on other courses.

Remember, this is the EFAW + F at a knock down price compared to other providers.

Attended yesterday's EFAW+F course, I have to say, as always when renewing my first aid card,I find things have changed / moved on as usual ....So if you are nearing the end of a current qualification, now would be a good time to book this offering, I calculated for my own outlay for the course & expenses to attend this fairly distant venue (to me), that excellent value was had, as against anything closer to my home location, a skilled practitioner having modern equipment, supplying the learning process in an easy atmosphere, (some people struggle with role play), Also put some faces to names off here & had some great chat / exchanges of info, (Particularly a chunk of REAL knowledge from a Veterinary member imparted about ticks), Mr Massingham's lunch offering of home made chilli & rice was wolfed by all, Tea Coffee & biccies were in good supply too, & I even managed to trade a bit of powder to a member via another attendee, so all in all, a very good day.
