HealthFirst First Aid

Training for Students

First Aid is for everyone, everywhere

Our training courses, while being age-appropriate are lively and fun, packed full of useful information and tips. They are designed to encourage active youngsters and teens to have the confidence to act in a range of everyday medical situations. Our trainers are practicing doctors, nurses, or midwives and we bring our courses alive by drawing on our knowledge and experience. 

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 (Samaritan course or Samariter Nothilferkurs). Courses can be delivered in English and/or French and on your school premises.
