First aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury until proper medical treatment can be accessed (if necessary). First aid courses will train you to perform a a series of simple and, at times, life-saving techniques in the event of an accident or emergency, using minimal equipment. There are various types of first aid for different situations, but they're united in three main aims: to preserve life, prevent further harm (i.e. prevent the condition or injury from worsening) and promote recovery. The first thing you'll probably learn is the ABC of first aid, which stands for Airway, Breathing and Circulation and must be applied to any person in a critical condition before the treatment of less serious injuries. With a basic knowledge in first aid, you could be the difference between life and death.
First aid courses in London will give you the confidence and knowledge to act calmly and appropriately when faced with a medical emergency as well as treat the most common injuries. No previous experience is required and you can apply your skills to real life situations in the workplace, the home or even on the streets.
