This comprehensive course is particularly suited to those with an interest in learning first aid and for groups such as youth clubs, sporting organisations and transition year students. The basic first aid course will enable participants to act as a back up to Occupational First Aiders in an occupational setting and/or respond to an emergency prior to the arrival of more qualified personnel. Participants will learn a range of practical basic first aid skills so that they can deal competently and confidently with common injuries at home, at work, during leisure time or in the community. Included in the training are the basic techniques of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the action to take in the event of choking for adults and children. The course can be adapted to include training in the use of an Automated External Defibrillator if required.
