HONG KONG (Asia Samachar, 8 Jan 2015): Twenty one Sikhs underwent the First Aid Certificate Course set by the Hong Kong St Ambulance last month, making them the second batch of Sikhs to do so after some 30 Sikhs underwent the same course in November.
This time around, it was interesting to see some teens as young as 13-years old taking part in the course which introduces First Aid principles in 30 hours, practise First Aid treatment including CPR techniques, and hands-on practice for First Aid treatment at special circumstance.
Organsied by the Bhai Ghanayia Ji Education and Foundation Group with the support of Hong Kong St Ambulance, the course was conducted at Khalsa Diwan Hong Kong (Sikh Temple). The course instructor was Tsang Yiu Ming.
“We are working towards another course in July,” said Jasmeet Singh.
Last month, some 30 Sikhs, including kindergarten teachers, took part in a one-day first aid course organised by the Khalsa Diwan Hong Kong Sikh Temple with the help of St John Ambulance and Bhai Ghanayia Ji Education and Foundation Group.
The latest batch who undergo the course included kindergarten teacher Verpreet Kaur and active blood donor Dhillon Davinder Singh. He has donated blood for more than 120 times.
For its First Aid Certificate Course, the objectives are to introduce its principles in 30 hours, to recognise and practise First Aid treatment including CPR techniques, and to provide hands-on practice for First Aid treatment at special circumstance.
Each candidate is then examined on theory of First Aid, bandaging technique, and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.
