If you are looking for a more general first Aid course for your teenagers the St Johns ambulance training is worth looking up.  St John Ambulance is a leading charity, creating opportunities for people to help their neighbours, friends and colleagues, by giving first aid or personal development.

Their vision is that everyone who needs it should receive first aid from those around them. No one should suffer for the lack of trained first aiders.

Being able to deal with an emergency situation in a calm and helpful manner may not only save someone’s life it also builds confidence in the person executing it. With the St Johns ambulance training can includes; Emergency First Aid at Work, AED, fire marshal and moving and handling training. For any young person, these skills and knowledge can also be used in the workplace and look great on a CV to any prospective employer. As it is now a legal requirement as an employer to have a trained first aider in your business having shown an interest in First Aid could be a bonus when it comes to getting work.
