First aid training is a useful skill to have in the workplace, and can be taken by anyone who wants to learn how to deal with emergencies and injuries.
There are several types of first aid training courses, including:
Basic first aid – This teaches you how to deal with minor injuries, such as cuts and minor burns, as well as what to do when someone has had an epileptic fit or concussion. It also covers how to give CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) if someone has stopped breathing or their heart has stopped beating.
Advanced first aid. This is also a one-day course that teaches you how to deal with more serious injuries and emergencies, such as bleeding, unconsciousness and choking. It’s aimed at people who work in certain occupations — such as nursing assistants, nurses and paramedics — or those who want to be able to help others in an emergency situation.
Emergency medical technician (EMT). EMT training is more advanced than basic first aid and prepares students to provide emergency medical care in the field. Some people choose this course if they want to become paramedics or work in other medical professions that require EMT certification, such as nursing or occupational therapy.
First Aid at Work (FAW) course
The FAW course is an essential requirement for all employers with five or more employees. It teaches basic life support skills, including performing CPR and using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Emergency first aid at work (EFAW). This is an eight-hour course that teaches you how to deal with serious injuries, including those resulting from falls from height or electrocution. It’s designed for people who need to be able to respond in an emergency situation on the job (for example, construction workers).
Paediatric first aid – This course teaches you how to deal with children’s illnesses and injuries, including choking and seizures. It also covers how to look after babies or children at school or nursery.
CPR Training – Another type of first aid training is CPR certification which teaches you how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This type of course is recommended for everyone who wants to learn how to revive someone who has stopped breathing or lost consciousness due to heart failure or cardiac arrest.
First Aid for Injuries
Injuries can happen anywhere and at any time. They’re often unpredictable and can be very serious if not treated quickly. In this section, you’ll learn what to do if someone is hurt or injured. You’ll learn how to deal with bleeding and broken bones as well as burns and other wounds. You’ll also learn how to manage an unconscious person who has stopped breathing so they don’t die while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.
First Responder Level 1
The First Responder Level 1 course is ideal for anyone looking to improve their basic life support skills and become more confident when dealing with an emergency situation. It covers topics such as CPR, choking and bleeding control, so it’s worth taking if you want to prepare yourself for any unexpected events that occur while out and about in public places such as restaurants or shops.
