First Aid Training

AAL first aid 3

As with all of the other activities a member undertakes, the Australian Air League offers task badges for Physical Activities. These are practical badges, examples being cooking, sewing, knitting, public speaking and First Aid. The AAL recognises prior learning, and Air League badges can be awarded if members complete training through an outside organisation, such as a swimming club.

Padstow Squadron conducts basic First Aid training within the Squadron to all members on a regular basis. The instructors either hold First Aid or medical qualifications. If members wish to develop these skills they can undertake industry recognised First Aid qualifications (such as through St Johns Ambulance). On gaining these certificates the member receives his relevant Australian Air League First Aid badge, to recognise his achievement.
