​Basic principles, such as knowing to use an adhesive bandage or applying direct pressure on a wound, are often acquired passively through life experiences. However, to provide effective, life-saving first aid interventions requires instruction and practical training. This is especially true where it relates to potentially fatal illnesses and injurie. These procedures may be invasive, and carry a risk of further injury to the patient and the provider. As with any training, it is more useful if it occurs before an actual emergency. Upon completion of this course, you will know how to perform and explain standard first aid skills which include:


  • Comprehensive victim assessment 
  • Control of severe bleeding
  •  Wound care
  •  Treatment for shock
  •  Burns, bone, joint and muscle injuries
  •  Heat and cold exposure, and sudden illness


These are just a few subjects covered during the First Aid course. 


AED (Automatic External Defibrillation)

CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation)

First Aid/CPR & AED

(Adult, Infant and Child)


A typical CPR class provides you with both knowledge and training in resuscitating a cardiac arrest victim.  You will learn methods :


  • To check the severity of a victim’s injuries
  • To administer CPR
  • Check for breathing
  • Things to do if you are unable to pump in your breath that into the lungs of the victim


CPR classes are fairly intensive in nature, but they are of short duration too. At the end of the course, you will have to complete a written and practical exam. If you happen to pass both the exams, you will receive CPR certification with two year’s validity.

 It is also important to prepare before attending a CPR class. Consult with your doctor and find out whether you have suffering from any kind of physical condition that will only act as a hurdle in the process of CPR training or not. This is required, because CPR classes are demanding physically. Therefore, students are advised to understand and determine their physical limitations and abilities before attending the classes.
