Survival CPR


In an emergency situation, every second counts. It is not something we want to think about, but when an emergency is happening to your baby, family member or colleague, as much as you hope they’ll never happen, they can and do and you would want to be prepared with CPR and First Aid skills.

You may not realise the importance of a CPR and First Aid certification until you are faced with a life-threatening situation. For some, an emergency may never occur and for others it may happen more than once, but one thing is certain, the value of CPR and First Aid training is life-saving in an emergency.

In addition, emergency training is a necessary skill for the work environment, school teachers and caregivers, it means you are serious about taking care of others.
