First Aid Course | CPR | Level 3
First Aid Training is learning the administration of medical attention to an injured person, before competent professional medical help arrives on the scene. Knowledge of CPR not only means the difference between life and death, but also helps you to determine the sequence and the priority of first aid and CPR treatment during an emergency situation.
The First Aid Level 3 course will provide the student with more extensive knowledge of First Aid, CPR, medical emergencies and other conditions and situations that are not covered in the Level 1 and level 2 first aid training. It will be sensible to consider investing in First Aid Level 3 should you work at a workplace situated in a rural or difficult-to-reach area. Enhanced first aid knowledge will be beneficial whilst waiting for an ambulance to arrive.

In an emergency situation at the workplace, the first aid representative will be able to react, treat and deal with the situation in a calm and safe manner, until competent medical care arrives. This course is highly recommended for candidates who work in an environment where the likelihood of greater accidents are a reality, or when working or living in remote areas. You will be first on the scene of an accident/incident rendering care until competent medical care arrives.
