British Red Cross - first aid training


Why learn first aid?

Red Cross Training first aid course

Learning first aid can help you feel more prepared and able to cope in an emergency situation. For businesses, it can also help manage risks and reduce time lost due to illness or injury.

You never know when you might need to help a colleague, friend, family member, or even someone you don't know; we think everyone should have the skills and confidence to act in an emergency.

Course attendees with a pledge board

We trained over 150,000 people in 2016, and we're hoping to reach even more people in 2017 by asking everyone who attends our first aid courses to pledge to share their skills.

Our trainers will be encouraging people to take snaps of themselves with our #learnandshare pledge boards at the end of each course, and share the photos on social media.
