First Aid Training Courses in English

Could you help in a medical emergency? Our training gives you the confidence to act.

We offer a variety of first aid courses, taught in English by trained doctors, midwives and nurses. You will be taught the most up-to-date methods by experienced professionals who have had clinical experience in hospitals and doctor’s surgeries.

Training by healthcare professionals

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 practising doctors, nurses, or midwives. We bring our courses alive by drawing on our medical 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.

We regularly run face-to-face courses in Basel, Zurich, Zug, Bern and Geneva and also offer the Saving Young Lives training online.

The CPR and Emergency First Aid which I took was brilliant.

“Our trainer did a wonderful job at delivering the course at a great pace. She provided excellent examples and helpful hints all through the course. She was always available to answers all our questions. It was invaluable way to spend 4 hours to get my first aid knowledge up to date with the latest techniques.”

Tracey Bruton

I absolutely loved it!

“I recently took a half-day CPR and Emergency First Aid Training. Overall a very effective short course on basic life support in case of emergencies that left me with refreshed knowledge, stronger skills, very useful support material, and the desire to take a more comprehensive course.”

Maddalena Fumagilli

We would highly recommend this course to parents and grandparents alike.

“We received online First Aid training in CPR, and dealing with unconsciousness and choking for babies up to the age of one, to help us to deal with emergencies that may arise while looking after our grandchildren. The course has given us much more confidence in how to deal with emergencies.”

Robert Preston

I would definitely recommend Health First and will use them again.

“I was a little apprehensive about doing a first aid course via Zoom, however, it worked so well. The trainer, Nurse Polly, was excellent. Very clear and precise and she kept it very interesting and under control without deviations.”
