“Save a life” Community Emergency First Aid Training

Would you know what to do if someone stopped breathing?

If not, then emergency first aid training should be on your list of essential skills

A family-friendly first aid course which aims to teach you the essential basics of emergency first aid procedures for adults, children and babies. Our courses are designed to be simple to do and easy to remember.

This course will cover how to help someone who is unconscious (breathing & not breathing) or choking. Also, you will learn what to do with head injuries, severe allergic reactions, bleeding, burns & scalds, sprains & strains etc. Run in small informal groups with practical hands-on experience on resuscitation mannequins and time for Q&A’s

Hand on First Aid Training offers low-cost community courses a few times a year. Priced at less than 50% of our usual cost to enable more people to gain these essential skills.

Time: 3 hours

Who should attend this course.
These courses are open to anyone over 16 yrs, and we often get 3 generations of families attending which is brilliant! This course is perfect for family members, grandparents, expectant parents or parents of children of all ages.

What will you learn?
In just 3 hours you will learn the basics of first aid and simple life-saving skills including CPR, which will enable you to feel confident to help someone in an emergency and give you the knowledge to save a life! Our courses are delivered in a relaxed environment in small groups to ensure that everyone has individual attention, with a combination of powerpoint presentations, video and practical sessions which offer hands-on experience with realistic feedback resuscitation manikins.

Please note: CPR is usually performed on the floor.

We use state of the art Prestan training manikins which offer life-like and responsive training, which gives people a realistic experience of the best "real life" CPR outcomes.
