HSE First Aid Courses in Manchester
Emergency first aid courses in Manchester are available at ABC North West for anybody who wants to learn life-saving techniques or refresh their existing knowledge. As further research is carried out, emergency first aid practices are constantly under review and it is recommended that even those with a recognised certification in first aid should take a refresher course at least every five years.
Emergency first aid training is an essential requirement of many job roles and can quite literally be the difference between life and death. After taking even a basic course in emergency first aid, you are then equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to prevent serious injury and in extreme circumstances, the loss of life.
Even if it is not a specific requirement of your job role, first aid training can be a vital asset in normal life, particularly in busy cities and densely populated areas such as Manchester where you are statistically more likely to encounter a person who is having breathing/circulatory problems or suffered an accident of some form. Emergency first aid courses give you the peace of mind that you will know exactly how to react and deal with any number of medical emergencies, wherever they may occur.
30,000 people have a cardiac arrest away from hospital every year. However, only one third of these receive CPR from a bystander. In short, too many people die who could have been saved if one of those bystanders had basic first aid training.
ABC North West provide a full range of emergency first aid courses in Manchester, all of which are fully accredited by HSE.
