Information on first aid training

All training qualifications are valid for three (3) years from the date of completion.

The validity of the Basic First Aid Course or Advanced First Aid course can be renewed once during the validity of the training. The courses can be renewed with the First Aid Refresher course. If you need the valid Basic First Aid course and Advanced First Aid course qualifications for your work, it is advisable to complete these courses alternately every three years to keep both qualifications valid. 

Various work environments pose different risks and potential accident situations. The occupational health nurse's workplace survey determines the risk classification of the work environment, based on which the requirement for the extent of first aid training and the number of trained individuals is determined. In addition to this, it is the employer's obligation to provide instructions to each employee on how to act in exceptional situations.

Various regulations by authorities, legislations and qualification requirements may require more extensive first aid training than is specified in the Occupational Health and Safety Act. Generally, workplaces require one of the following courses:

  • Emergency first aid
  • Basic First Aid course
  • Advanced first aid course

The duration of first aid training affects the breadth of topics covered. Longer training sessions include thorough emergency first aid practice as well as training in various medical emergency situations, principles of first aid for different types of tissue injuries, first aid for various types of poisoning, and situations requiring first aid due to cold and heat.

We always target our training to match the risks and requirements of our clients' work.

All our first aid courses of four hours or more include at least the following sections:

  • Stopping the bleeding
  • First aid for choking
  • First aid of unconsciousness
  • CPR and use of a defibrillator
  • Responding to the event of an accident
  • Shock

You can read more about the content of the first aid trainings under each course.

The purpose of first aid training is to improve and maintain people's readiness to act in unexpected and sudden situations requiring first aid. Regularly organized first aid training increases people's confidence and readiness to respond in emergencies, enhancing overall safety both in the workplace and during leisure time. In these training sessions, participants learn to recognize situations requiring first aid and situations demanding immediate emergency first aid.

Emergency first aid refers to the immediate life-saving first aid measures that give the victim a chance to survive until professional help arrives. A first aid provider who has undergone first aid training is capable of performing many life-saving procedures without the need for tools and providing first aid in situations where there is no immediate danger to life.

Emergency first aid measures include:

  • stopping massive external bleeding
  • securing breathing
  • securing blood circulation

Uskalla Auttaa Oy´s first aid courses meet the requirements of the authorities and are eligible for KELA reimbursement. Please note that online trainings are not eligible for KELA reimbursement. A prerequisite for applying for KELA reimbursement is a workplace survey by an occupational health nurse, which defines the need for training. The amount of compensation to be claimed is determined by all KELA reimbursable services used by the company during the calendar year. If the annual KELA reimbursement ceiling has not been met, the maximum reimbursement can be between 40% and 60% of the costs of first aid training.

According to the definition by Ministry of Social Affairs and Health of the first aid training, the first aid instructor must be a health professional and must have sufficient training in first aid training. The same requirements are laid down in the Occupational Health and Safety Manual, as well as in the KELA requirements for the reimbursement of first aid training.

In first aid training by Uskalla Auttaa Oy, the requirements for trainers are even higher and our trainers have encountered people in acute distress in their work and know how to train others to help. With us, an instructor must have at least 10 years of experience in acute or emergency care, plus at least 5 years of experience training. We require our instructors to have instructor training and simulation instructor qualifications, as well as offer regular refresher training for our trainers.
