Course content

Revision of level 1 & 2 training

The vital components of Level 1 & Level 2 first aid are discussed. These revised topics include CPR, choking, brief summaries of the first aid level 2 important modules such as bleeding control, how to treat burns, scene safety, etc.

Crush injuries and compartment syndrome

We go over the condition the body goes into when circulation is cut of, which can lead to organ failure if not treated properly.

Multiple injury management

Candidates will be taught how to treat the multi trauma patient scenarios both in theory and practically.

Skin injuries

We go over workplace materials that are hazardous to the skin, like irritants causing dermatitis, allergic reactions, and cancer which can be caused by cleaning products, oils, paints, cement etc.

Emergency childbirth

In this chapter candidates will be taught how to deliver babies during normal childbirth on a birth simulation manikin. The health of the mother and the infant is extremely important and if the incorrect techniques are followed it could be dangerous and even result in the loss of both their lives.

Behavioural emergencies

Behavioural / psychiatric emergencies are when someone’s behaviour is so out of control that they can cause harm to themselves or to others. Candidates need to be able to be able to treat these patients compassionately before they become a danger to anyone.

Water accidents

Water accidents include drowning, diving accidents and decompression sickness. Different injuries have different treatment methods and the First Aid Level 3 trainee needs to be well prepared to treat a variety of water accidents to the best of their ability.

Assessment methods

We conduct a formative theoretical assessment at the beginning of the course to gauge the learner’s initial understanding (novices only). At the end of the training, a summative theoretical and practical application assessment is conducted, to find if the learner is competent; if not, additional developmental areas are identified and suggested.
