A fully certified Emergency First Aid at Work Course, specifically aimed at Range Officers or anybody else involved with the Shooting Community, will be held at Tunbridge Wells Target Shooting Club on Saturday 29th June.
The course will cover the standard material commonly found in a First Aid At Work course, but in addition will include material designed to meet the needs for anybody who might need to treat a ballistic injury, including a module on catastrophic haemorrhage,
a relatively common phenomenon associated with ballistic injuries.
There will be a presentation on ballistics and ballistic injuries; however; this is not a compulsory module as it will contain some very graphic imagery from the instructor's time spent caring for the wounded in Los Angeles, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan in his professional medical role.
The course instructor, Bruce Jenner, has worked extensively as ballistic injury expert for the British Military, both in the field and in advisory roles, and is a published author in this specialised field.
The course meets the required standards as defined by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and accredited through the Governments Qualification body OfQual; in other words the certificate can be used anywhere in the UK as an Emergency First Aid at Work Certificate.
The course fee is £100 for the full day. Tea and coffee will be provided but participants should bring their own lunch.
