Whether we are at home, in the workplace or in public we never know when we will be faced with an emergency situation. You will be able to react more efficiently in an emergency even with basic level first aid training. Although we hope to never have to use these skills, there are many benefits of completing a first aid training course.
Benefits of First Aid Training:
- Being trained in first aid means you could help save a life. You will gain invaluable knowledge and skills and build confidence which could help save a work colleague, a family member, a passerby or even your own life.
- You could be the difference in life and death for a casualty. Delivering first aid to a patient whilst waiting on an ambulance could not only keep them alive but could speed up their recovery time.
- With a range of first aid courses on offer, you could assist in different types of situations or medical emergencies. Mental Health First Aid has become more desirable recently, allowing you to effectively aid someone with mental ill health.
- Having a first aid certificate can enhance your employability. It is an extra skill to bring to your CV and is appealing to potential employers. By training members of your organisation in first aid, you could help create a safer working environment.
