Basic First Aid Course

📋 About Basic First Aid Course

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).
