First Aid and NARAS

Sunday, June 14th, 2009 at 19:12 | by Alistair Baillie

That’s another few weeks done so I’ll give you all a quick update. Following on from EDH I had a week off. This was mainly spent continuing my studying and drinking coffee in Costa. As a bonus it was also very warm and sunny that week so I spent a bit of time outside in an attempt to go slightly less white!

Following my week off was a week of first aid – well 4 days of first aid. This was one of the most interesting short course so far – possibly just being beaten by advanced fire fighting.

Following that was NARAS – this has to be the most fun short course I have taken. NARAS for those not aware is basically a ship simulator course where you do a mixture of singular and interactive exercises involving the other teams on the course.

I am presently at home for a few days before I head back to Warsash on wednesday to continue my revision.

I have only two short courses left, GMDSS starting next week and CPSC which starts the week after. I then have a week or two until my orals examination which is quickly drawing closer.
