The 3-day basic course First Aid gives you a diploma from ‘’Oranje kruis’’.
A person with a First Aid certificate has more skill and expertise in offering lifesaving help than an ERO-er.
When a company has a higher than average risk for a big incident the company needs to have a staff member that is certified to provide First Aid.
During the course you learn what you should do, but also what you really shouldn’t do. The course is taught by a doctor and a First Aid instructor. To make the practising as real as possible we use ”volunteer victims”(LOTUS slachtoffers).
This training is provided by STC B.V. The course schedule can be found on their website: www.stc-bv.nl
