In-flight medical emergency situations can develop suddenly and without warning. The aircrew’s knowledge and skills in first aid can mean the difference between temporary or permanent injury, or the difference between life and death.

The Aviation First Aid Trainers course is suitable for all those who will be delivering first aid training for aircrew. The course prepares participant for a training role and enables them to teach first aid procedures and ensure that crew are capable of responding effectively to a range of possible injuries and illnesses inflight and on the ground.

The course provides instruction on how to train aircrew in the most appropriate way of dealing with a first aid incident or emergency in the air, what actions to take prior to the emergency services arriving and what to do if an emergency occurs outside but in the vicinity of the aircraft, e.g. whilst boarding passengers or in the event of a crash. The course uses a range of teaching methods including classroom instruction, group discussion, simulation and practical sessions.

During the course the participants will learn how to conduct practical exercises and will be required to demonstrate competency in cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) sequence using a training manikin. The course also includes use of Automated External Defibrillation (AED) equipment.

Knowledge and skills are assessed through assessed instruction sessions and on the final day a written exam. The course package includes:
