The Basic First Aid course facilitated by SGK Consulting is designed to train members of the public in the basics of first responders. This course covers first aid, emergency scene management and life support techniques for adults and children. Unlike the level 1, 2, and 3 First Aid Courses, the Basic First Aid course does not strongly focus on workplace health and safety, but rather the general training around how to handle emergency situations.
