Phillip has really enjoyed the practical activities of the Uniformed Services course. These have ranged from taking part in challenging multi-person first aid scenarios, through to USAR missing person search scenarios and learning about the fire service through real life fire service training activities. Phillip says that meeting the professional people who work in these services has given him a much greater insight into the different roles and type of work they do. He has a lot of respect for the difficult work these people undertake and the challenges they face every day that they go to work.
Phillip feels he is broadening his knowledge base and has learnt how to react effectively in difficult situations. He has learnt new skills such as how to help in his community in an emergency situation, as well as developing and strengthening his communication and leadership skills. Phillip says the course was “amazing with loads of fun activities to keep you interested”.
