Equip your aircrew with the essential skills and knowledge to provide lifesaving first aid in emergency situations with our Aviation First Aid Course. Designed specifically for aviation environments, our comprehensive 1-day course covers the most appropriate methods of dealing with incidents in the air and on the ground before emergency services arrive.

Our experienced trainers will guide participants through practical exercises, demonstrating the correct methods for administering first aid in aircraft environments, and ensuring that they develop competency in key techniques such as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of Automated External Defibrillation (AED) equipment.

Upon completion, participants will have the skills and knowledge to confidently supply competent aid to the sick and injured in all inflight and ground situations.
