6-hour first aid course

The 6-hour first aid course is mandated by the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs regulation 80 (14.12.2000) – there must be a first aid-trained employee at every office! The employer must send the first aid provider for a refresher course every three years.


We teach you what first aid means and how to save the life of a person through simple CPR skills.

We cover the following topics:

The ABCs of CPR (for adults/children) • Airway obstruction (by a foreign object) • Stopping major bleeding • The shock position • The coma position • First aid for traumas • Moving an injured person • Dressing wounds • Bone and joint injuries • Burns
