First Aid & CPR

The skills learned in First Aid courses & CPR training are invaluable every day and often required in various career fields.

Wherever you may find yourself in situations where emergency medical assistance is needed, the skills learned from completing a First Aid course or CPR training will be beneficial.

The first aid courses offered by ATEC will equip you with the necessary skills to respond effectively to cardiac arrests, injuries, and other medical emergencies, depending on the course you choose to undertake.

If you are required to have one of the following qualifications for your employment, your employer will advise you. However, pro-actively seeking out a First Aid qualification may make you more attractive to a potential employer in any of the following fields:

  • Child-care Provider
  • Construction
  • Flight Attendant
  • Lifeguard
  • Managers and Retail Staff
  • Fitness Instructors
  • Volunteers
  • Nanny & Babysitter
  • Security Guard
