About Basic First Aid Course

Basic First Aid Course is a classroom-based, instructor-led program with skills, hands-on training and demonstrations conducted throughout. The course will teach the students the critical skills in responding to different emergencies in the first few minutes before an emergency medical team arrives. Students will also learn how to perform Adult Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).

Kindly note that if you require a First Aid certification accredited by the Singapore Resuscitation and First Aid Council (SRFAC), this is not the course you need to attend. The one that you need to attend is the Standard First Aid+AED course.

For example, if you are a Sports Coach under the National Registry of Coaches, or if you require first aid certification in order to conduct your trainings or programmes in schools, then the course that you are looking to attend is the Standard First Aid+AED course.
