Course Overview

This Basic First Aid course offers students the opportunity to learn first aid skills and to further develop existing skills in order that they can take a first responder role and provide basic first aid treatment until more advanced help arrives at the scene. The course also includes the phase of emergency care that either: prevents respiratory or circulatory arrest or insufficiency through prompt recognition or intervention; or supports the victim to relieve an airway obstruction; or supports the breathing and circulation of a victim with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
