This compact course is designed to cover two of the most important first aid topics - whether or not to engage in CPR and how to treat life-threatening bleeding.
Covering both topics in detail, this course is highly practical and teaches the systems for how to treat these emergencies. We ensure all students leave with refined skills and confidence, whether it is a first timer or a veteran first aider.
Each student receives brand new, in packet bandages so they understand every single step - from taking a deep, settling breath and gloving up, to opening the packets to engage in treatment, using our state of the art training aids to simulate treatments. Best thing is, they get to take this home to practice!
Our courses are 'no fluff, no jargon' taught by experienced trainers with real-world experience in using these techniques to save lives. The courses are practical, fun and teach you the skills to save a life.

To run this as a on-site private course, we require a training space with adequate room for practical activities. At any stage, half of the group will be working on partners lying on the ground - we need ample space for them to work safely. As it is quite practical, the room needs to be well ventilated.
We'll need two tables, enough chairs for the participants and space for the projector to display. We're happy to use your AV set up if you have one.
