Emergency First Response training focuses on building confidence in rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Course participants learn simple to follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a non stressful learning environment.
The emergency first response course teaches through theory and practical assessment how to deal with emergency situations on land. The course is split up in 2 parts. Primary care (CPR) and secondary care (First Aid).
Emergency First Response – Primary Care:
Teaches participants how to respond to life-threatening situations through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice. The participants will have the confidence to provide care when emergency situations happen.
Emergency First Response – Secondary Care:
Covers injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening. Participants focus on secondary assessment. First aid through knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice.
