Very high quality training. I gained new knowledge, even though I have attended similar courses elsewhere before. The instructors and assistants did a great job with the videos, the course was easy and interesting to follow. I got all the information I needed in a nutshell! Many thanks.


A really good and convenient implementation. Works well this way, having done the ea several times.


The online course was easy and straightforward to implement at home. The trainers are clearly professionals in the field. I chose this one because I could not find a suitable weekend course nearby.


The trainer was good and full 10 points.


Inspiring and genuinely informative content. Serious topics, but implemented with a positive approach. Real-life examples and a realistic approach to situations. Comprehensive content. I warmly recommend everyone to participate and update their first aid knowledge. Thank you.


the course went well in bits and pieces as you went through the sections during breaks in your work. So there was no need to be away from effective work.


A clear and varied course. The content was presented in an everyday environment through everyday examples. Professional and pleasant trainers. I recommend!

When you want to be sure that you have sufficient first aid training, choose our Basic First Aid course.

Our official Basic First Aid course meets all regulatory requirements and is the most comprehensive first aid training on the market. It has been designed to meet all the different regulatory requirements, ensuring that it also fulfills the first aid training requirements, regardless of the designation or abbreviation used for first aid training. For example, if the requirement is for emergency first aid training, you can always take our Basic First Aid course, as it is a more extensive training and always meets that level of requirement.

Different abbreviations and acronyms for first aid courses have been removed or are being removed entirely from official guidelines and various requirements. Despite changes in occupational safety administration, the use of old designations may still be seen in outdated official guidelines, training requirements, or job postings. However, our basic first aid course is sufficient training in all these situations, regardless of the designation or abbreviation used for first aid training.

Yes, our online courses meet all official requirements and include, among other things, practical training, more extensive content than usual, and are sufficiently long in duration.

The online first aid courses of Uskalla Auttaa Oy differ from the general practice, where online courses may be shortened versions, and therefore may not meet all the requirements of the authorities.

Why are online courses generally shortened versions?

In the field of first aid training, the construction of online courses has often been based on slides and PowerPoint presentations. This makes it relatively inexpensive to build an online course, without the cost of building new content and video production.

The online courses of Uskalla Auttaa Oy are built in the opposite way and exceptionally from the point of view of the student and the requirements of the authorities. We have put significant effort into building the online courses to meet all regulatory requirements and to make them more interesting for the student/course participant.

Our Basic First Aid course is the most comprehensive basic first aid training on the market in terms of content and actual duration. Our online course is structured according to the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health guidelines as a 16 lesson course (16 x 45min). Course completion time may vary depending on the pace of the student, but the average planned duration is 16 lessons. See below for the course modules.
