IMPLEMENTATION OF THE TRAINING COURSE
The course will have a minimal focus on theory, and will instead primarily entail realistic exercises, participant reflection and practical training. Exercises and training must be carried out in a relevant and suitable area with the inclusion of realistic props.
In order to receive the Danish First Aid Council’s first aid certificate or Specialist training programme certificate, this programme must be completed as an extension of the “First aid for accidents” or “First aid for cardiac arrest” basic training courses. Alternatively, participants must have completed a Danish First Aid Council basic training course within the last 24 months.
This course does not cover basic life support.
