Recently 2248 (Rutland) Sqn ran two Youth First Aid courses simultaneously for cadets from Rutland & Stamford Sqns. All 24 cadets passed. The courses took place over 4 squadron nights and a Saturday. The highlight of the course where the scenarios set by the Rutland NCO’s on the Saturday – One of the piercing screams made the whole class jump, including the instructor. Luckily the cadets dealing with the incidents where able to deal with them in a safe, effective and prompt manner.
Most of the cadets at Rutland now hold a first aid certificate of some kind.
