What Is First Aid?

First aid is used to provide emergency first aid care to sick or injured persons and to help stabilise their condition until professional medical help arrives.

First aid can be used to treat minor injuries, but it can also help save lives and reduce the pain felt by the person being helped. It can also prevent injuries from worsening and reduce the recovery time required by the patient. If you want to be prepared for emergencies, it’s a good idea to take a first aid course.

Why Do I Need to Learn First Aid?

Injuries, accidents, and medical emergencies happen all the time, and learning first aid is a solid step in making sure you’re ready for them when they do happen.

Additionally, learning first aid can also help you identify hazards in your home, office or facility and learn how to minimise them. Having a lifeguard at home or at work is also a factor in establishing an appropriate emergency response plan. Learning first aid and getting first aid certification can also be beneficial for your career. Many workplaces and occupations need people who know how to give first aid.

If you plan to work as a fire-fighter, nurse, electrician or lifeguard, first aid certification will improve your employability and in many cases fulfil a mandatory requirement of your employment.

In many cases, completing first aid courses also counts towards professional development hours, and contribute to your CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points.,
