First Aid skills can be the difference between life and death for a workmate, family member, a stranger on the street, or even yourself. Whether you need it for your workplace, your club, in another setting or would just like peace of mind.
First Aid is not just a useful skill, it could also help save a life and minimise the impact of injuries.
Our comprehensive course will provide you the knowledge, skills and confidence to help an ill or injured person until emergency help arrives. You will learn the DRSABCD action plan as well as resuscitation (Including defibrillation), asthma, anaphylaxis and the management of various injuries and illnesses.
