Schools’ first aid training

This comprehensive first aid training course is specifically designed for school staff, teachers, and administrators. It covers essential first aid skills and knowledge to respond to common emergencies and ensure the safety and well-being of students and colleagues.

That is why this course offers substantial knowledge of, as well as hands-on training in first aid that covers a broad range of common risks for school students and faculty members alike. This course should be conducted by certified instructors with experience in first aid training, and participants should receive official certification upon successful completion.
