First Aid is one of the core Air Cadet activities and forms part of every cadets training. As such, the ACO has developed a series of cadet First Aid qualifications in conjunction with the St John Ambulance. These can be delivered on the squadron or at courses run by Wing HQ.
Youth First Aid
The Youth First Aid Course is open to all Cadets aged 13+. It consists of a minimum of 12 hours instruction followed by a practical assessment. We have qualified First Aid Instructors and Assessors on the Squadron so can deliver the qualification in-house.
Cadets successfully completing this course are awarded a certificate and the Youth First Aid Badge to wear on their brassard.
Activity First Aid
The Activity First Aid Course is open to all Staff and Cadets aged 16+. It consists of a minimum of 12 hours instruction followed by a practical assessment this is delivered and assessed by qualified First Aid Instructors authorised by Wing HQ. The AFA Course is more in depth than the Youth First Aid Course and introduces topics specific to the outdoor environment. Those holding the Activity First Aid qualification may also instruct in the Youth First Aid syllabus.
Cadets who successfully complete this course are awarded a certificate and receive the Activity First Aid Badge to wear on their brassard.
Annual Dinner and Awards
Our awards evening is the highlight of the year. This is where the parents of the cadets are encouraged to come along to see their sons and daughters receive their well earned awards and certificates.
A recent addition to the awards evening is our Awards Dinner. This formal event again sees friends and family witnessing the top annual awards being received whilst enjoying a top 3-course dinner at one of Stirling's best venues.
It's not all work and no play at 1019, and we have plenty to celebrate, from Burns Night, Dine in evenings, movie evenings, our annual summer BBQ, Halloween to our Christmas party. These are great, relaxed and informal evenings, where cadets can let down their hair, dress up and have a party.
