Bodmer says the condensed information and skills will empower people so they do not feel helpless in emergency situations.
She encourages attendees to continue to practice the skills learnt from the sessions afterwards in order to build muscle memory.
The sessions will take place at Vangate Mall, Blue Route Mall, V&A Waterfront from 10h00-14h00 on Saturday 5th November.
