Fifteen air cadets from 378 (Mannock) Squadron have recently completed the Youth First Aid Course which was run by Cadet Flight Sergeant Jade Dawson.

The course, which runs over twelve hours, allows the cadets to learn skills in resuscitation, the recovery position, how to deal with head injuries, bleeding and shock.

FS Dawson, 18, put the cadets through their paces with first aid scenarios in order to prepare them for the final assessment. Squadron Warrant Officer, Alan Wiggs then conducted the final course assessments and was pleased to say that all the cadets passed.

Squadron Leader Adrian Utting was able to present the successful cadets with their certificates during the annual presentation evening in December.
