Save the Life of a Loved One with these Basic First Aid Skills

  • Stop your baby from choking
  • Save a loved one from a heart attack
  • Recognize a stroke before it’s too late
  • Help accident victims
  • Stay safe during a fire

When the Sh** Hits the Fan, You Can Keep Your Cool if You Know What to Do

In the age of the internet, there are plenty of online first aid courses for you to choose from. These will teach you all the same things, but you won’t get to practice those skills to get them right.

Here, you will learn to reach the same goal – saving a life – in a way that you won’t need to practice in class to get it right.

Calling for an ambulance is always step one, but what then? When every second counts, you can make the difference between your loved one making it in (relatively) good shape onto the ambulance, or deteriorating catastrophically before help has even arrived.

If you want to learn what to do when things go wrong, check out this course.

Content and Overview

We designed this first aid course so that you can learn crucial skills like CPR without practicing them in class. You don’t need any prior knowledge to take this course.

We cover the most common life threatening emergencies, from the generic “there’s someone lying on the ground, is he unconscious?” to “that car hit a woman in the crosswalk, I think she’s still breathing!”

You will learn not only what to do in different types of emergencies, but also how to help different types of people. For example, you can’t do CPR on babies the same way you do on adults, the Heimlich manoeuvre is different for pregnant women, and not everyone can be saved from a heart attack using aspirin.

We’ve also included some bonus content:

  • Info on the leading causes of death in the world – heart attacks and strokes – why they happen, how you can recognize them, and what you should do when they happen.
  • Important guideline you should follow in case of a fire, as well as tips on how you can prevent the fire altogether.

Finally, we’ve boiled everything down to the exact steps you need to remember for each emergency situation, and put them all in the downloadable Study Manual for you to keep and refer back to whenever you want or need to. Now you’re ready to roll.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to learn what to do in an emergency.
