Why Train for First Aid?

 width=First Aid Training should be universal – everyone can learn first aid and everyone should be given education in first aid.

Some basic principles of first aid, such as applying a bandage or direct pressure on a bleeding part of the body are often acquired through ordinary life experiences. However, to provide effective, life-saving first aid interventions require special training.

First Aid Training is useful for one to be able to recognize emergencies and act fast without panicking. It gives an individual sufficient confidence and skills to help a person maintain breathing and circulation before definite medical treatment is given.

It also increases one’s alertness to keep himself and the victim away from potential harm. One area where First Aid Training is important is where it relates to potentially fatal circumstances that require cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

After attending a course, one is awarded a certificate of training.  Procedures and protocols usually change based on updated clinical knowledge, and to maintain one’s skills, one is often encouraged to attend regular refresher courses and re-certification is often necessary.
