A First Aid course can save lives! Figures show that up to 150, 000 lives could be saved each year if there were more people who had completed a First Aid course. Nobody wants to be in a position where they are required to administer First Aid; but sometimes, these situations arise and having the relevant skills can be invaluable.
You may need to do a First Aid course for work purposes, want to learn First Aid techniques for your family, or maybe you just want to develop a new and useful skill. Whatever the reason, a First Aid course could make all the difference when it comes to saving someone's life!
