First Aid saves lives

HealthFirst First Aid

Do you know what to do in a medical emergency?

Could you help if someone stops breathing, has a heart attack, is choking or has extensive burns? We believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to know what to do in a medical emergency. People with some basic knowledge and skills can save lives and reduce the impact of an injury or illness.

Our trainers are practicing doctors, nurses, or midwives. We bring our courses alive by drawing on our knowledge and experience. Every session is packed with useful, relatable, and vital information. Our Basic Life Support courses are accredited by the Swiss Resuscitation Council.  All courses may be delivered in English or French.

HealthFirst delivers a range of First Aid and Basic Life Support courses including the approved First Aid course for the Swiss Driver’s Licence.

We regularly run face-to-face courses in Basel, Zurich, Zug, Vevey and Geneva. We also offer the Saving Lives: CPR and Emergency First Aid course online.

First Aid Course for the Swiss Driver's Licence

This is the obligatory, fully certified, First Aid course (sometimes known as the Samaritan course or Nothelferkurs) required for the driving licence in Switzerland. It is delivered by native English-speaking trainers.

First Aid Courses for the Public

First Aid saves lives. It's for everyone, everywhere.

Our dynamic courses in First Aid and Basic Life Support give you the confidence to react in a medical emergency.

First Aid for Corporate Clients

Every hour in Switzerland, 6 people have a heart attack, stroke, or sudden cardiac arrest. This could happen in your workplace. It’s not enough to have a First Aid Kit or a defibrillator on the wall – you need to know how to use them.

Our team will come to your offices to teach practical and interactive First Aid courses, so that you have trained First Aiders who are certified and confident to act in an emergency. Training can be delivered in native English and/or French.

We work with companies and international organisations every day and know how to engage your employees to make these courses fun and memorable.

We provide in-house training for both staff and students. Be it for a teacher-training day or as an after-school activity, our flexible team can find a time convenient for you. Popular courses for staff include Basic First Aid for Schools and Swiss Resuscitation Council Basic Life Support training.

For students, we can help with preparation for the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, and we are accredited to teach the First Aid element of the Swiss Driver’s Licence. Courses can be delivered in English and/or French.
