Emergency First Aid/AED
Ever thought about learning basic first aid techniques in order to be able to quickly react during an emergency situation?
This 8-hour training will allow you to recognize abnormal signs and symptoms that can arise in everyday life, and to apply the necessary emergency measures.
In this course, you will learn, among other things, to provide basic treatments in order to immobilize an injury, to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) and to administer epinephrin with an auto-injector. You will also learn to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on an adult and on a child, and to efficiently react in a respiratory emergency or cardiac arrest situation.
This course can be adapted according to the participants’ needs.
