This is just an overview of the second week in training, not a lot happened this week as parts of our training took 3 days for each topic so apologies if it sounds boring.
Day 1: This was a continuation of the conflict management of the training. This is a total of 3 days and we covered body language, personal protection and the ways of encouraging people to calm down by talking to them. This was interesting and will no doubt prove useful when i start coming into contact with the public. We were also told where we would be stationed much to our delight.
Day 2: This was the final day of conflict management as above involving an exam on the subject before we carried out another role play with examples of conflict management. We also collected out ID's and keys from HQ.
Day 3: This was the first day of first aid, and this was delivered by the outside security company of which i think we were all glad of as they are ex military and have more experience than most people. This day covered CPR, recovery position and general first response.
Day 4: This was the second day of first aid covering bleeding, reasons for unconsciousness and a overview of the previous days CPR, recovery position & first response.
Day 5: This day consisted of a quick refresh of all the first aid and then we had a written exam and two role play assessments including one for CPR and one for the recovery position. All pretty simple, but no doubt very useful! We also received out collar numbers which finished the week off nicely.
