Training in emergency response is becoming an essential requirement for many jobs and courses. These skills are invaluable for ESYLs. That’s why training in emergency aid is part of the Scheme. Given the wide availability of training courses in first and emergency aid, ESYLs complete this module by attending a recognised training course.
