First Aid Training
Much of first aid training is common sense. There are some basic concepts in first aid training, such as knowing how to use an adhesive bandage or applying direct pressure on a bleeding wound. A lot of these are often acquired through life experiences. However, being able to perform more advanced, life-saving first aid interventions requires instruction and practical training. This is especially true where it relates to potentially fatal workplace safety issues and injuries, some of which require CPR or “cardiopulmonary resuscitation”. These procedures and (many more) is what you will learn through our first aid training course.

One of the most basic and easiest ways to ensure that your employees are protected and prepared for workplace safety is to provide them with first aid training. Our First Aid courses teaches participants to recognized and care for life-threatening respiratory or cardiac emergencies in adults, infants and children and provides the knowledge and skills needed to care for injury or sudden illness until professional medical help arrives. Students will receive a certificate upon successful completion of a written and practical evaluation. Certificates are valid for three years.
