Part Five: First Aid

We never know when first aid may be needed for us, our work colleagues, or our loved ones. We all hope that if first aid is required, then there will be someone nearby who can step in and help. By taking our course you can arm yourself with the skills and knowledge to become “that person”.

Here are 5 reasons why we think you should learn first aid:

Life is unpredictable

You never know when an emergency will arise; it is better to be equipped to handle critical situations with loved ones, friends, colleagues, or strangers, than to helplessly stand by. Think about how you could be the one to prevent the loss of another person’s life. You could be the difference between life and death!

You’re a parent or work with children

Most parents will have yelled at least once “Don’t play with that – you’ll hurt yourself” but when it comes to treating a sudden illness or injury would you know what to do?

A first aid course can give you the knowledge and, more importantly, the confidence to deal with emergencies that may affect a baby or child whether they are your own family, you work with them or you just happen to be passing. You could be the difference between life and death!

Save yourself

You never know when an accident might happen. What if it happened to you? What if no one else around you has first aid training when you need their help, but you do? All good questions. First aid training means you’ll be prepared to face most emergency situations. You could be the difference between life and death!

Safety awareness

Safety should be a part of your everyday life no matter where you live or what kind of industry you work in. Through first aid training, you’ll become more aware of safety issues and in turn, this can assist in reducing the number of accidents in the workplace or at home. After all, prevention is better than treatment. You could be the difference between life and death!

It’s a skill for life

We think first aid is an important skill to have under your belt, but it also looks great on your CV. All businesses have policies in place which require a certain ratio of first aiders to employees, so this could boost your chances of employment and you could be the difference between life and death!

Overall, it turns out there really is only one main reason why it’s a good idea to undertake a first aid course – be the difference between life and death today!

We offer a 3-day first aid course or a half-day refresher course both covering the St Andrews First Aid Safety Training. More information can be found on our courses page.
