Emergency First Aid at Work (for Dance Teachers)
The ISTD has been working with Surrey First Aid to offer one day courses in Emergency First Aid at work with a specific focus for dance teachers or workers in a dance environment. These highly successful courses have been well attended by a variety of ISTD members and non-members ranging from fully fledged dance teachers to receptionists at dance schools.
First aid training is esssential for anyone who has a business and this training is specially created for low-risk environments. Providing basic first aid and acting promptly could make all the difference to someone who is injured. This course gives the knowledge and skills to be able to act calmly in emergency situations.
When we asked some of the course attendees what was the most useful aspect of the course there was a resounding response of "Everything!" They highlighted the importance of being able to physically practice some first aid, ranging from CPR to dealing with common dance injuries such as sprains and fractures. Time and time again the feedback has been extremely positive and everyone left feeling prepared and confident in their ability to assist in an emergency.
The course is Approved by the Health and Safety Executive and following your attendance a certificate will be issued which is valid for three years.
