Learn first aid - you could save someone’s life
 

Thousands of lives a year could be saved if more of us knew basic first aid. This 2-week course is a basic guide to first aid.
 

You will learn how to recognise and manage emergencies and build a foundation of first aid knowledge and skills to build on. Whether it’s how to help someone who’s choking, helping someone who has passed out, or helping someone with a severe cut, this course will give you the confidence to deal with basic first aid problems.
 

This two week course aims to provide you with essential knowledge that will create the foundations in which you can recognise emergencies and apply basic first aid. Each week two common day to day and potentially life-threatening scenarios will be addressed. We will provide step by step guidance where you will learn to recognise and manage an acute situation until help arrives.

Learn basic first aid skills that could save someone’s life…

During this free course you will learn clinical skills through a mixture of videos, articles and online quizzes.

The four scenarios covered will include:

  • The unresponsive patient with a pulse
  • The unresponsive patient without a pulse - CPR
  • Choking
  • Acute bleeding

First aid is a universal skill that can be used by anyone, at any time and in any place. Having an understanding of basic first aid concepts ensures that you are equipped with the knowledge and skills to save lives in an unpredictable situation. First aid is a transferable skill and an invaluable addition to any CV. This course hopes to provide you with a building block to shape your first aid knowledge around; in addition we will provide you with key information about local first aid charities if you wish to get involved in the future or study to gain a recognized qualification in first aid. Feel free to post links to other relevant charities and organisations in the comments sections.
