Learning First Aid in courses by Uskalla Auttaa Oy

We are committed to providing our clients with the best possible experience in our first aid courses. Our experienced team consists of acute care professionals who have already trained thousands of satisfied clients. Indeed, our strength is definitely that each of our educators has been working in acute care, which is why they know what they are talking about. Every trainer can tell their listeners for sure how resuscitation is performed, but few can tell how it feels. In our first aid courses, real-life experiences enliven the atmosphere and we know how to tell what situations the trainees may find themselves in, as well as how they are able to cope with these situations with the operating models we teach with honor. It is important for us to answer not only the questions “what and when”, but also “why”. In our courses, you will also gain a deeper understanding of what happens to a helper in different situations and what means can be used to act more effectively and more calmly in the event of sudden situations that disrupt everyday life.

When planning first aid courses, our top priority is customer learning. Because of this, we have built all of our first aid courses so that learning is enjoyable and we get our clients genuinely interested in the topic. We sincerely believe that you will enjoy our first aid courses and will be able to provide you with the best possible experience of first aid courses. That is why we dare, for example, as the only service provider in Finland to give our customers a full satisfaction guarantee for first aid online courses. In practice, this means that if you do not like our first aid course, you can request a refund for the first aid course within seven (7) days and before the final exam and we will pay it to you immediately without unnecessary inquiries.

What is happening in the first aid courses?

In first aid courses, you will learn to identify and act correctly in a variety of situations that require first aid. Some courses are broader than others. In the Emergency First Aid Course (HEA) you will learn to work in emergencies, in the Basic First Aid course (EA1) you will learn to work in the most common accidents and illnesses in addition to emergency first aid, while in Children First Aid and Emergencies you will learn to work with children in various first aid situations.

The lengths of different first aid courses vary and that is why the study itself is different. The most important thing is to learn first to identify situations that require first aid, and to be aware of how to act in these. Practical training helps in the activity itself. All courses have theoretical studies, on the basis of which the cognitive ability to act in various situations requiring first aid is acquired, as well as the ability to start independent practical practice. Depending on the length and content of the course, the course itself may also include various practical exercises.
