Course description

This unique one-day course has been specifically designed to equip participants with the practical and essential life-saving skills needed to cope in an emergency situation. There is a clear focus on the essential elements of basic first-aid and basic life support with an emphasis on hands-on practice. The course content can be tailored to the needs of the client and to specific industrial and commercial business sectors. Ideally suited to members of the general public who would like to learn a high level of practical basic first aid skills over a short time frame and do not require formal certified training.
