MHC members complete First Aid course

26 July 2020

Yesterday morning on Saturday 26th July, 5 members of Mansfield Hockey Club, as well as 5 members of Ashfield Aztecs Ladies Hockey Club and 3 members of Ashfield Ladies Rugby Club successfully passed their QA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator (RQF) at Ashfield Rugby Club.

The course was taught by fellow Mansfield Hockey Club member Craig Stevens through his company Essential First Aid Training, and it consisted of mixture of classroom based learning followed by practical based learning of the Resuscitation procedure, CPR, and the Recovery Position.

The transmission of COVID-19 was tightly controlled throughout the course by doing temperature checks upon arrival, ensuring 2m Social Distancing when possible, with face masks being worn upon practical teaching of the recovery position, as well as frequent application of hand sanitizer and the wiping down of dolls between uses.

MHC would like to give a massive thank you to Craig Stevens, Adam Denley, and Mandy Taylor of Ashfield Rugby Club for making this morning possible!
