Keep your entire family safe with this First Aid course

We have found that many families and parents do not know the basics of first aid and do not really know what to do if they come across an accident or serious illness. Learning these basic life-saving skills is easy with the National MedicAid’s Family First Aid course.

This course includes the latest CPR and Coronavirus recommendations.

First aid is not difficult to learn or deliver and whether you choose a class or online course both courses follow through from immediately life-threatening conditions like a cardiac arrest to less urgent problems like minor injuries.

You never know when something could happen to someone in your family, so learning now will prepare you to deal with an emergency situation should it arise.

The course aims are to give an understanding of the needs of a family. It covers primary and secondary care skills for adults, infants and children. Knowing what to do in an emergency is an excellent life skill to learn and the course covers many subjects that you may come across.

This course comes with 6.0 hrs of CPD. The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a National MedicAid Certificate.
