The Training Courses Center at College of Education in collaboration with Department of Physical Education organizes a training course under the logo "How Students Deal with Emergencies and provide First Aid," under supervision of Department of physical Education and patronage of Dr. Ali al-Matrafi, Dean of the College and Head of the Department, Dr. Tawfiq al-Bakri's support.

The activities of the training course continued for two days (Monday and Tuesday, 18-19/07/1437H) at Anatomy, Sport Injuries and Rehabilitation Unit of the Department at College of Education from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with a view to training students on how to behave correctly in emergencies.

The course targeted the UQU students. 40 trainees participated in it. HE Dr. Medhat Qassim Abdel Razeq, Professor of Sport Injuries and Health Sciences gave a lecture in which he shed light on a number of emergencies and how to deal with each of them, including Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, artificial respiration, giving emergency medical care to those suffering from epilepsy or fainting, training students on the correct way to carry the injured, how to deal with bleeding in general and nose bleeding in particular, how to deal with those who swallow their tongue, how to deal with concussion, incised wounds, joint dislocation, muscle tear and strain, electric shock, heat stroke, bone fractures, and muscle contractions and cramps.

It is worth noting that dealing with such emergencies correctly and on a scientific basis constitutes a necessity for saving people's lives especially because they are cases that a player or even a normal person may face in gym, game courts, or even in their daily normal life. Those surrounding the injured person should have knowledge of how to deal with such person and save his/her life. This cooperation came within the Department's role in service of internal and external communities.
