This training is suitable for all workplaces that do not have a particular risk area.
A course that teaches CPR on children, including the use of defibrillators. The course teaches the technique for infant CPR (0-1 years old), as well as child CPR (1-18 years old). The course also includes airway obstruction.
This training is suitable for establishments that handle children, such as schools and daycares.
A course that includes areas of First Aid that are immediately life-threatening, such as severe bleeding, circulatory failure and burns, as well as life-threatening medical conditions such as stroke, heart attack, diabetes, allergies, etc. In addition to specific First Aid topics, it also includes the entire Adult CPR training.
This training is suitable for workplaces that have a risk of injury, as well as those who have previously completed Adult CPR training and want to deepen their knowledge.
In addition to the standardized training programs above, it is common to create a specific training program tailored to a company’s needs. Some examples of common training programs include:
