Who should complete first-aid training?
It is basically recommended for everyone!
A first aider is the first person who can help an injured or ill person.
Accidents and illnesses are part of everyday life. It is important for everyone to know how best to help in certain situations and what to do in the event of a (traffic) accident or stroke, for example, or how to act in the event of a respiratory or circulatory arrest.
Everyone is a potential first aider and is obliged to provide first aid, especially road users!
