Anne is an EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE Instructor and offers CPR and First Aid courses on the Costa del Sol. Parents, babysitters, au-pairs, grandparents, nursery workers and therapists to name but a few of those who can avail of this excellent training.

 

WHY Emergency First Response?

Having researched the subject Anne felt this international training system was well suited to the local needs of a very multicultural community. With over 40 yrs experience in developing the training materials and educational curricula, they follow the protocols as developed by the members of ILCOR = International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation. Members include the resuscitation councils of America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and South Africa.

 

WHY Consider a Children’s Course?

Accidents happen, and if you interact with young children you hope that the injuries are minor ones and the illnesses are those that are part of growing up. However the truth is, children are often involved in major accidents and suffer from significant medical problems. You as a responsible adult – parent or guardian – cannot control all variables but you can be trained to offer assistance that may improve a child’s chances of a positive recovery.

 

HOW?

The easiest and most efficient way of studying a new subject is to complete some ‘independent study’ using a manual and DVD, which are then your own to keep. Independent learning has been shown to aid memory, it allows you to study at your own pace and not spend unnecessary time being ‘taught’ in a classroom. On the actual course day you review the theory and then perfect the new skills by spending considerable time doing them with Anne. Being in small groups allows you to learn from each other whilst also practicing your skills. Different scenarios bring a sense of reality to all you have learnt.
