First aid for injuries sustained related to temperature extremes – elective training course
1 hour (60 minutes)
GENERAL DEVELOPMENT GOALS
Participants will be able to act in accordance with the 4 key steps of first aid and give relevant first aid to victims affected by extreme heat or cold (body part or entire body).
TRAINING COURSE CONTENT
- First aid for heatstroke
- First aid for burns
- First aid for frostbite

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 program certificate, this program 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.
