Everyone in the world would benefit from studying the First Aid Diploma Course. The information within is literally a matter of life and death and though we may not always need to use the knowledge, and hopefully we won’t, it’s a great education to have.

First aid training will equip you with the awareness and practical capabilities of how to react if the worst happens. It’s the knowledge of how to help someone that collapses, cuts themselves, gets hurt in an emergency situation or finds themselves in a medical emergency.

This course guides you through 9 comprehensive modules:

  • References and Further Study

The first module of the course introduces the topic and gives helpful information on how to approach an accident, injured person, or someone in need of help. This module also covers the commitment that places of work have, to have employees trained in first aid.

Touched upon in the proceeding module, module 2 discusses the role of the person who is first on scene/ the first responder, it also discusses environmental considerations and guides students through some situations that they may find themselves in. Also outlined here is what you should have in a basic first aid kit and what a natural or holistic first aid kit should include.

Moving directly on from module 2, module 3 shows you how to assess a patient and talks through how to perform CPR on adults, children, and infants. Also taught is: how to correctly monitor a pulse, how to get someone into the recovery position and why you would do this, and when a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) should be used.

Each of the modules 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 of the First Aid Diploma Course go into specific areas of first aid, discussing when and how treatment should be given and in which situation you would not use certain techniques to treat a patient. These are the practical modules that give you step-by-step instruction on how to assess a patient and give relevant care to patients suffering from: choking and anaphylaxis, heat and cold conditions, burns and scalds, bleeding and shock, or bone and tissue injuries.

Module 9 summarises what has been learnt in the previous modules, whilst also teaching what to do in a medical emergency and discussing first aid in the context of the law.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

As mentioned, the First Aid Diploma Course is suitable for just about everyone. We all hope that we would never have need for first aid knowledge but at some point in life we generally do, whether it tending to a small graze or cut and knowing how to properly clean and bandage the wound, to recognising the symptoms of a heart attack, how to aid the sufferer, and potentially saving a life. These are skills everyone should have.

More specifically the course would benefit those who are around other people as part of their profession, for example, care and social workers.
