To give families a valuable life skill we have created our popular Family First Aid course  

We have found that many families and parents do not know the basics of first aid and do not really know what to do if they come across an accident or serious illness. Learning these basic life-saving skills is easy with the Family First Aid course. This course can be taken in a classroom course nationally with an approved and monitored instructor  

This course includes the latest CPR and Coronavirus recommendations.

First aid is not difficult to learn or deliver when you have the correct training from immediately life-threatening conditions like a cardiac arrest to less urgent problems like minor injuries.

You never know when something could happen to someone in your family, so learning now will prepare you to deal with an emergency situation should it arise.


Full Details

Candidates should have a positive attitude, be responsible, have an aptitude to help, be able to think clearly in times of need, be willing and able to learn new skills, be physically able to deal with first aid situations and have good communication skill
