ESSENTIAL FIRST AID - for anyone who wants to learn up-to-date, general First Aid ...

... but without the huge time and cost commitment of a longer course.

About the course:

This is a concise practical course covering general First Aid. It looks at:

  • CPR (practice with manikins) plus use of automated defibrillators in a public setting;
  • Choke-rescue techniques (practice with manikins);
  • Dealing with emergency medical situations such as heart attacks, strokes, diabetic emergencies, seizures, etc;
  • Dealing with other emergency situations such as burns, allergic reactions, poisonings, concussion, broken bones, etc. 

This course can also be adapted to suit specific workplaces - we have, for example, run courses for arborists, roofing insulators, gym trainers, where we have been able to focus on the potential risks of these specific industries as well as covering more general first aid.

Everyone on the course receives a booklet, to complement the explanations and demonstrations on the course. Participants also receive a certificate. The course is four hours long.
