Aquatic First Aid

This course is ideal for waterside locations where there is no requirement - statutory or otherwise - for a qualified lifeguard. Examples might be small hotel pools, leisure centres, and spas. Aquatic First Aid would normally be taught as a "bolt-on" to a regular First Aid at Work, Emergency First Aid at Work, or Water Safety course.

Although first aid is much the same anywhere, there are certain refinements to make CPR more effective in the event of an aquatic accident. These techniques are not normally taught as part of a regular first aid course.
