I play unconscious. I couldn't stop laughing though
New European rules state that if I want to be a busdriver I need a new type of driving license. One that proves that over a period of five years I've done at least 35 hours of courses, of which 7 hours are driving hours. One of our new clients has demanded that in order for us to do the work for them, we all need 'proof of good behaviour', CPR/First Aid and New Driving (not a clue).
The legless Marcos are being revived
So, on Tuesday me and several colleagues made our way to the class room for our day long course in First Aid and CPR. During the day we were taught how to recognize concussions, strokes, heart attacks, broken bones and what have you. We were also told how to do CPR (which I already knew and unfortunately have already practised once), turn unconscious people over, lift people and put on simple bandages to stop any bleeding. As long as we participated with the practical side, we would pass that. But at the end of the day we also had to take a written test. I think I made two mistakes (out of thirty), so I passed.
No blood coming through, so I must be alright!
We had to go through a lot of material and it would have been better spreading it out over two days. It would certainly have made it a bit easier on the brain. We did have a laugh though and since I took my camera along, I've got quite a few photos as well.
