Instructors Development Course

I have succesfully finish the Instructors Course for the four Participants. I have one day of rest and start with the Standard First aid, CPR and AED provider course for the Taj Resort Employees.

It would be a tiring job since I will be conducting the course to at least 60 participants in two weeks time. But I am expecting that it will be fun and exciting.

I was told to coordinate with thier HR Officer since it will be the HR officer who will facilitate as to who will be joining the training each day.

Each department will be represented to insure that all areas of the resort will have a first aider and cpr provider. This is very advantageous scheme since this will guarantee that should an accident occur in the area, someone can provide the necesarry care.

The four participants for the ECSI IDC will be joining me from time to time to comply with the last requirement to becoming an ECSI Instructor. That is, to assist me during the provider course and conduct a course of their own.

This is the reason why I have decided to start with the Instruct0rs Development Course so that they will not have a hard time complying the last requirement. Find below the pictures during the IDC.

Taj Resort In Mali, Maldives

I was contacted by a Resort Located in Mali, Maldives to conduct Standard First aid, CPR and AED course on thier employees. The Taj Exotica Resort located in Mali, Maldives.

My travel expenses were all handled by the resort. Although my purpose was to conduct Standard First aid, CPR and AED provider course for the employees, the HR officer, and Safety Officer together with two other personnel from another hotel in the airport decided to take Instructor Development Course.

I have decided to start with the IDC Program since a basic requirement to pass the Instructors Development Course is to conduct one provider course after taking the Instructors Course. It would be an opportunity for them to conduct and and assist during the provider course for First aid and CPR to the resort employees.

Just to give you an overview of the resort, The Taj Exotica Resort and Spa is situated in the middle of one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives: Emboodhu Finolhu. Once known as the three coconut island, this romantic retreat is a haven of relaxation, peace and tranquility surrounded by clear blue waters and covered with tropical plants and coconut palms.

Though the students have already undergone First aid training as part of their module, this course was intended so that they will be able to acquire First aid comletion card and Professional CPR completion cards.

The training started at 8 in the morning where the participants registered and were issued handbooks from the Emergency Care and Safety Institute. After a short orientation, discussion on First aid and common emergencies followed.

The course actually was good for 3 days divide into three. On the First day, First aid and common emergencies life burns, fractures, wounds, bleeding, splinting and common medical problems like fainting, stroke, epilepsy, convulsion were discussed.

On the second day, was CPR and AED and adjunct devices with hands on CPR and AED return demonstration.

first aid training, cpr training, aed training

After the first ECSI course we were contacted by a Caregiving Training Center in Cebu to provide Certifications and Completion Card for their caregiving students.

First aid and CPR are one of the modules incorporated in Caregiving Training.

The Cebu Caregiving Studies and Development Center (CCSDC), a caregiving school located in Mel Go Bldg, Sanciangko St. Cebu City have been training Caregivers for almost 10 years. They are accredited by TESDA, a government agency to conduct and issue Caregiving Certificates. Most of their students have landed caregiving jobs in Canada and other foreign countries.

As noted, one of the basic requirements in working abroad is First Aid, CPR certification. It was for this reason that the school have affiliated with us for First aid and CPR Certifications and Completion Cards.

The administrators of the school have been inviting me for seminars long before when I was still the First aid instructor in the rescue unit.

With this development, our training center, Basic Lifesaving Solutions will facilitate, train, and issue First aid and CPR certifications of international acceptance to all their Caregiving Students.
