First Aiders - Quality or Quantity?

I have been involved in training first aiders since 1982 whilst as a training officer with the Avon Ambulance Service and now with my training company First Response. I have always had great respect for first aiders taking on this important position within their organisation, however! Do organisations select the right people for these courses and what selection criteria have they if any?

The New Resuscitation Council (UK) 2010 Guidelines?

The new resuscitation protocols were introduced in Oct 2010 and I wondered if any successful resuscitation has been documented? I have always been a great advocate of chest compressions based upon 33 years experience within the NHS Ambulance Service dealing with cardiac arrests.
