You don’t have to be a diver to take this course, it’s an extremely useful skill in all walks of life. Hotels and large companies should all have their fair share of willing responders.

What Will I learn?

Participants will learn simple to follow steps to responding and applying skills in an emergency situation. It’s not easy to step forward in emergency situations so hopefully this course will give you the confidence and willingness to do so. You will guided by our instructors in a non-stressful environment with the help of videos, manuals and staged emergency scenarios.

During your first aid training you will focus on three key areas:

Primary Care
This section teaches techniques and procedures for dealing with life threatening emergencies. Eight skills will be practised, beginning with assessment and treatment through to monitoring the patient until emergency medical professionals arrive. Aiding patients who have no heartbeat, aren’t breathing, in shock, serious bleeding or may have spinal injuries will all be covered. Your intervention could give them the best possible chance of survival.

Secondary Care
Accessing a number of non life threatening injuries. Basic first aid to keep the victim comfortable, reduce the risk of further injuries and bandaging and splinting. It may be just a case of talking and reassuring the patient until help arrives but still a vital skill. All will be practised in the classroom.
