About Course

Have you ever felt unprepared and unable to administer first aid in an emergency? This course allows you to equip yourself with the knowledge and advanced skills to provide first aid and save lives. A first aider helps to preserve lives, mitigate harm, and speed the recovery of injured or affected people. This emergency response course lays out the principles and techniques of first aid and discusses its critical role in increasing survival rates.

We first show you how to accurately evaluate an emergency situation and ensure the safety of the responder and the victim in the face of potential hazards. A critical component of emergency response is effective communication. We demonstrate how to communicate with victims, take swift action, and ensure their safety and comfort until professional medical help arrives. We examine the ALGEE plan framework, which stands for ‘assess risk, listen without judgment, encourage appropriate help and encourage self-help,’ and teach you how to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental distress, effectively pacify such individuals, and prevent self-harm.

The course then explores first-aid techniques, injury management strategies, and protocols for handling medical crises like heart attacks, strokes, allergic reactions, and seizures. We also discuss environmental emergencies such as hypothermia, heat stroke, choking, and poisoning. This first aid course is designed to assist various individuals, from healthcare professionals and first responders to educators and parents. It is also valuable for anyone who wants to be prepared to handle medical emergencies, whether personally or professionally. Seize this opportunity to master first aid and be ready to make a positive impact during moments of crisis.
