Secondary Care (First Aid)


This is a must for divers and non-divers alike. Accidents and illnesses happen every day. Some people need only a helping hand while others may suffer serious permanent injuries without help. By mastering Secondary Care (first aid) course skills you can render important care to those in need. There is no minimum or maximum age limit set on the course.


Our Primary Care/Secondary Care Course count towards CPD (Continuous Professional Development) points for professionals


You’ll be learning state of the art skills, based on the consensus view of the Basic Life Support (BLS) Working Group of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). In addition, the programme is based on established instructional design and meets the criteria for the Appointed First Aider award.
