This course has been specifically designed for musculoskeletal therapists to equip you with vital skills and confidence to help an adult or child experiencing a medical emergency in your clinic, or in the community. This training does not seek to replace a practical first aid course. This course is an excellent first aid training package for people to gain invaluable knowledge at their own time and pace and a great first aid training package for those with English as a second language to prepare themselves to pass a practical first aid course. The content also serves as an ideal annual refresher covering the full HSE syllabus plus head injuries, heart attack, asthma and much more.

This course fulfils all the criteria for Appointed Person first aid training, however a practical course is required in order to be a full First Aider.

It is impossible to cover all eventualities within this course, or to equip you with the knowledge and skills to appropriately diagnose and treat in unpredictable real life situations. If you suspect serious illness or injury, you should always seek immediate professional medical advice.
