Emergency First Aid

Emergency First Aid

Emergency First Aid (EFA) refers to the immediate assistance provided to someone who is injured or suddenly taken ill. The aim is to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and promote recovery until professional medical help can be obtained.

Importance of Emergency First Aid Training:

  • Immediate Response: Quick and effective response can save lives and reduce the severity of injuries.
  • Confidence and Preparedness: Training helps individuals feel more confident and prepared to handle emergency situations.
  • Legal and Workplace Requirements: Many workplaces require employees to have first aid training to comply with health and safety regulations.

Course Format and Duration:

  • Duration: Typically a one-day course, around 6-8 hours.
  • Certification: Participants receive a certificate upon completion, usually valid for three years.
  • Combination of Theory and Practical: Courses include both theoretical knowledge and practical hands-on experience.


Emergency First Aid training is essential for equipping individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to respond effectively in emergency situations. Whether in the workplace, at home, or in public, having trained first aiders can make a significant difference in saving lives and minimizing the impact of injuries.
