Why you should have a first aid training

We are more than 7.4 billion people on earth and the number keeps growing, but not so many people can say they know how to react in case of an emergency, should it be someone choking on food at a restaurant, witnessing a car accident, or watching a person who suddenly falls unconscious.

Most people are scared just thinking about those kinds of situations, and it is completely normal to feel that way. If that is what is stopping you from taking first aid training, that is too bad because the only thing you can do to attenuate that feeling is to know what you should do in such cases.

Since you will not be a professional, your role will not be to save someone at any cost, take a person out of a burning house or rescue someone falling off a mountain top; first aid courses have been developed to be accessible to anyone. And if it helps you decide to do the training, keep in mind that you could save the life of a friend or a family member someday…

You can follow online courses on a few websites, this will be a good start to get a basic knowledge of first aid and safety training. Nevertheless, it cannot replace a consistent quality course provided by a professional. They are delivered in many places such as schools, hotels, local authorities and Ministry of Defence. As you know, practice makes perfect.

Both will cost you about £30 and you will be given a certification. Perhaps you feel like you will never need it but always remember the old adage: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
