Why is It Important to Learn First Aid?

First aid is administered to a sick or injured person with the aim of preserving life, preventing the patient’s condition from worsening, and promoting their recovery. CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a well-known component of first aid, but first aid is also used to respond to injuries, allergic reactions, and other medical emergencies. First aid knowledge can be used to address and reduce risks in the home or workplace. Some professions require people who have proper first aid training certifications, while many companies are also required to have at least 1 first aider in their office or facility.

How Will Learning First Aid Benefit You?

Learning first aid has many advantages. It allows you to have a keener eye in surveying your

environment and identifying and addressing the risks in the places where you typically stay, such as your home or place of work. First aid training also prepares you to take action in cases of medical emergency. It helps you adopt the right mindset and use the proper tools and techniques to aid survivors until professional medical help is available.

First aid training can also improve your employability and help you forward your career. It’s imperative to learn first aid to grow in certain professions, and a Statement of Attainment can help make your CV more attractive to prospective employers.

How Do You Become a First Aider?

A first aid training course equips students with the right skills, knowledge, and mindset that will be useful during medical emergencies. Students in an accredited first aid class can be as young as 14 years old, but those below 18 years of age need to present signed parental consent before they can enrol in the course. After completing the course, students will earn their Statement of Attainment. Some of these certificates have a validity period and need to be renewed regularly. A CPR certificate, for example, has a validity of 12 months, while a Provide First Aid certificate has a validity of 3 years.
