What is First Aid?

First aid is the assistance given to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and/or promote recovery. It includes initial intervention in a serious condition prior to professional medical help being available, such as performing CPR while awaiting an ambulance, as well as the complete treatment of minor conditions, such as applying a plaster to a cut. Our Nationally Recognised First Aid certificate will give you the confidence and training to provide basic levels of first aid. 
First Aid is also known as Senior First Aid which was previously used. Other terms may also include Apply First Aid  and First Aid Level 2.
