2. Passed Basic First Aid

Rationale: Identifying the different wounds / bleeding / scalds are basic knowledge in which a cadet must learn while attending basic first aid lessons. This helps when he / she learns how to carry out the simulation.

Pre-Course Administration

School will register for the course via the following online registration form:

(b) Summative assessment - by conducting the assessment after all skills are taught.

3. The assessment guidelines include the following:

(a) Ability to carry out the following simulations:

(i) Cuts and Abrasions

(ii) Different degrees of burns/scalds
