First Aid – Basic training
The 3-day basic course First Aid gives you a diploma First Aid from ‘’Oranje kruis’’. A person with a First Aid certificate has more skill and expertise in offering lifesaving help than an ERO-er. When a company has a higher than average risk for a big incident the company needs to have a staff member that is certified to provide First Aid.
During the course you learn what you should do, but also what you really shouldn’t do. The course is taught by a doctor and a First Aid instructor. To make the practising as real as possible we use ”volunteer victims”(LOTUS slachtoffers). Participants of this Fist Aid course learn what to do when there are i.a:
- Stopped blood circulation
- Disturbances in consciousness
- Disturbances in breathing
- Severe external bleeding
- External wounds
- Bruises and sprains
- Dislocation and fractures
- Eye injuries
- Electrical accidents
- Injuries caused by heat
- Injuries caused by cold
- Transport over short distances
The open enrolment training consists of a 3 days instruction from 8 am. until 4 pm. First two serried days and a week later a third day. The group normally consists of abut 12 participants. The practical course will be concluded with an exam.
For groups and in-company trainings the times and course formats can be adapted (evenings and weekends are also an option).
The exam will be concluded under the control of ”Oranje Kruis” by a examination team and two “volunteer victims”. It contains a theoretical part. This certificate is valid for two years.
To keep the certificate valid one is obligated to follow a 7 hour refresher every year.
The training is conducted in the Dutch language. On request we can organize the training in English or another language.
All First Aid courses can be performed at DELTA or at your location.
