This method also ensures that learners with L&N issues are not lost in the course and critical life-saving skills are obtained.

Conducting this type of training in the environments you work also aids in highlighting any issues that may present themselves in such incidents allowing you to prepare and adjust as required. Its also allows you to see and understand issues associated with communicating and managing the injured and the course scenarios allow you to also test and or create Emergency Action Plans for your use.
