Why do I need Advanced First Aid?

Provide First Aid teaches the signs, symptoms and first aid management of most common conditions, but it does not address some of the more advanced, serious, time-sensitive and dangerous conditions. You do not ever want to be in a position where you cannot be of assistance because you only know how to assist in ‘common’ conditions.
