Air Cadets provides a platform for learning skills for both in day to day life as well as towards future careers.
First Aid being a key life skill, is one we are keen to instill in Cadets from the moment they join.
Cadets from all over have been known to put their training into use in a wide variety of circumstances from basic First Aid with a plaster or two, to some cases at the other end of the scale where lives have been saved.
Within the first few months of joining, new recruits are taught the basics by way of being trained on the British Heart Foundation Heartstart Qualification.
Cadets then progress through First Aid Training on to the St John Youth First Aid and St John Activity First Aid Courses, and even become qualified instructors themselves. Either way it looks great on a CV and you have this knowledge for life!
