First Aid Training

What is First Aid?

First aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury. It is usually performed by a non-expert person to a sick or injured person until definitive medical treatment can be accessed. Certain self-limiting illnesses or minor injuries may not require further medical care past the first aid intervention. It generally consists of a series of simple and in some cases, potentially life-saving techniques that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment. We have our own qualified First Aid Instructors who teach through Emergency First Response.

What is Emergency First Response?

Emergency First Response (EFR) courses encompass adult, child and infant CPR and first aid skills, and incorporate Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) training and emergency oxygen use. Emergency First Response courses are flexible in design to accommodate scheduling and training needs. They can be taught together or alone in any combination.

The Emergency First Response courses build lay rescuer confidence to provide care when faced with a medical emergency. Students learn and practice the same patient care techniques and principles used by medical professionals, but at a lay person level.

Where are our EFR courses being run?

Our Emergency First Response courses may be run at any location with adequate facilities with which to instruct the course. We currently use a variety of locations mainly located in the Kota Kinabalu area.
