Last Tuesday (9th October), the Callidus team did something a little bit different to usual, taking part in a first aid course in the office.
The course was run by local instructors First Aid Hampshire (http://www.firstaidhampshire.co.uk/about-first-aid-hampshire), who took the team through a number of basic life support exercises.
These included how to put a casualty in the recovery position, CPR, how to use a defibrillator and how to deal with choking and anaphylaxis. Course leader, Ben, was fantastic, taking time to make sure everyone was confident in what they were doing as well as answering lots of questions along the way.
The team found the course incredibly interesting and felt that the skills they learnt during the day were invaluable.
