The aim of the course is to give Cadets an understanding of the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, how to carry out CPR, place a casualty in the recovery position and how to deal with someone who is bleeding or chocking.

The course was run by Heartstart trainer, Flight Lieutenant Lynda Waplington who said “the Cadets really enjoyed the course and particularly liked practicing CPR on the resuscitation dummies.”
