5 Cadets from 1F (City of Leicester) Squadron were joined by 3 cadets from 2502 (Hamilton) Squadron in completing their Youth First Aid. The qualification, awarded by St John’s Ambulance, is a comprehensive first aid training course open to young people aged between 11 and 16. With 12 hours of training stretched between Saturday and Sunday, as well as the assessment.

Cpl Power of 1F (City of Leicester) said, “The weekend was enjoyable because of how much you learn and the casualty simulation was very life like.” Cdt Kidy of 2502 (Hamilton) Squadron said “I felt I achieved a lot this weekend and I look forward to the opportunity to complete my Activity First Aid.” Assessment was provided with help from Officer Cadet McGlynn from 1181 (Syston) Squadron. “I would like to thank the staff and the cadets for both their hard work and dedication demonstrated throughout this weekend. Whilst we hope they never need to use their skills, the ATC has yet again helped cadets develop and provided them with skills that are useful in both civilian and military life,” said Sgt (ATC) Milligan from 1F (City Of Leicester) ATC.
