Emergency Aid and the Appointed Person

Course Information

The Emergency Aid and the Appointed Person course is designed to train individuals and company staff that require appointed person training in basic first aid skills.

This course will provide first aid skills necessary to manage a patient that is not breathing normally, is unconscious or is bleeding prior to the arrival of the emergency services.
