Why should you take a First Aid Course ?
First Aid is defined as the help given to a sick or injured person until full medical treatment is available. Effective emergency treatment before professional help arrives can go along way to reducing the effects of illness and injury and indeed save someone’s life!!!!
The 2021 First Aid course dates will be announced as soon as we have a clear picture regards the COVID-19 restrictions.
