Yes, that's my badge.
Yesterday was the final day of the three-day First Aid at Work course. In actual fact, only about a third of the day was learning new stuff - broken bones, dislocations, spinal injuries - the rest of it was divided between practice, sitting around waiting for the assessment, the assessment itself, and sitting around waiting for the results.
The assessment was much less terrifying than I'd expected it to be. The two assessors were very friendly and went out of their way to put me at my ease. I had to show what I'd do to treat a bleed resulting from a head wound, followed by shock. Then what I'd do if I were called to someone who was unconscious for some unknown reason. Then how I'd do CPR. Apart from my CPR getting a bit slow as I got tired, I was pretty much OK.
I still don't know how I'd react in the real world, whether I'd throw up or pass out, or whether I'd actually be of any use. However, I do feel much more confident, and competent, now.
Besides all that, it was a really fun three days; I met some great people and had a good laugh.
