First Aid is an interactive web course in medical treatment onboard a passenger aircraft, designed as preparation for practical lessons in the classroom led by an instructor.
The course is available both as Initial Aeromedical but may also be used as a web-based programme before practical, recurrent training. The Aeromedical programme may be customised for each airline’s procedures and medical equipment onboard, at an additional cost. Some parts of the medical training, e.g., CPR, must be physically practised, in a classroom. This course has been developed for both cabin and flight-deck crew, and for various medical situations that might occur onboard an aircraft.
The main objective of the course is to guarantee that crew possess adequate knowledge of the human body and symptoms of the various medical conditions that might occur onboard. Crew will be able to make the right decision as to what a passenger is suffering from and the treatment required.
