Arm Yourself with the Knowledge to Provide First Aid

Community First Aid gives you the basic first aid training to help in your community. This course goes alongside our Community AED course for training in the use of community AED units and gives you a general understanding of how to deal with a first aid emergency in your local community.

This course is ideal for community AED groups, church groups, youth groups or families or individuals to give the basics of CPR and immediate care.  Knowing just the basics will give you the confidence to help the most serious condition of cardiac arrest.
