First Aid Awareness

Knowing how to appropriately respond to first aid situations is important, not just for your work, but in any part of your day-to-day living.

First aid awareness training is not a substitute for becoming a fully trained first aider. However, even without a formal first-aider qualification, you can still be vital in supporting someone until medical assistance arrives. You may even help to save someone’s life.
