Learn a life skill that saves life and spreads awareness

One of the primary concerns of every human being is ensuring each other’s safety. In a highly unpredictable environment, it is important that individuals are equipped with skills to respond to accidents and injuries that may occur at home, workplace or public gathering.

The First Aid course equips an individual to provide the assistance required before medical help arrives. First Aid assistance speeds up emergency response time which may otherwise have long term health implications, hospitalisation or sometimes also turn fatal.

What the course is about?

The short course is designed to equip students with the skills required to assist in an emergency until medical help arrives. Such an emergency may occur in a range of situations, including home, workplace, community or public gathering. Irrespective of your profession, it is always an added advantage to have First Aid training which is instrumental in the safety of people around you. On completion of the course you will be issued a nationally recognised statement of attainment.
