Family First Aid


First Aid for Family Emergencies

We have found that many families and parents do not know the basics of first aid and do not really know what to do if they come across an accident or serious illness. Learning these basic life saving skills is easy with the ProTrainings Family First Aid course. This course can be taken as a classroom course nationally with an approved and monitored ProTrainings instructor or it can be taken online using video based learning.

First aid is not difficult to learn or deliver and whether you choose a class or online course both courses follow through from immediately life threatening conditions like cardiac arrest to less urgent problems like minor injuries.

You never know when something could happen to someone in your family, so learning now will prepare you to deal with an emergency situation should it arise.

The course aims are to give an understanding of the needs of a family. It covers primary and secondary care skills for adults, infants and children. Knowing what to do in an emergency is an excellent life skill to learn and the course covers many subjects that you may come across.

The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.

This course comes with 5.0 hrs (6.0 class) of CPD, although the time to complete the course online may be less than this. Total course time includes 4 hours and 21 minutes of video training as well as knowledge reviews, final test, remedial help and reviewing downloaded material.

Our Online Training 

ProTrainings’ e-learning courses are video based and not slide based. This puts the student with a qualified instructor in a 1 on 1 setting. Training comes in short subject-based segments that are able capture relevant environments as it pertains to the student. Each group of subjects then has a pre-test section where the student confirms comprehension. This is followed up by a scenario based test that not only challenges but remediates the student when an incorrect answer is given.
