What will I learn?
You will learn how to recognise a cardiac arrest, practice CPR, learn how to operate a defibrillator, learn how to treat choking, how to do child CPR and how to recognise a stroke.

Why is this important to me?

Every day in Ireland 13 people die from a sudden cardiac arrest and around 70% of these happen at home. By starting CPR immediately and using a defibrillator, you can really improve the person’s chances of surviving.

The National Mature Student Gathering will take place in Trinity College Dublin on Friday 18th January 2019, hosted by USI, the Union of Students in Ireland.

It is often hard to ensure Mature Students feel supported & included as part of a wider campus community during their time in college, and this is a co-ordinated effort across Students' Unions to ensure there is a national event to meet mature student needs and provides the opportunity for networking and to further assess needs.

The day will include a Panel Discussion with Sabbatical Officers, talks on Time Management, Public Speaking, and looking forward to career/college exit strategy.
There will also be guidance about budgeting, LinkedIn, and a discussion about mature student supports/development of mature student societies.

Registration Form:
