First aid teacher Education

What will you learn?
You will learn everything you need to teach your pupils and students first aid. You will need to work through the theory of the First Aid and Helper courses on an independent basis in a self-study course before the start of the course.

Specifically, this means that you need to prepare before the start of the course. Using the book Help! First Aid for Everyone AND the Course Book you will process the first aid content yourself. Both books should be purchased through our web shop.

It is an intensive course that will give you the necessary baggage to give quality first aid to your students. 

In the first part of the course, we immerse you in first aid techniques and first aid content from Belgian Red Cross-Flanders and you take a practical exam. In the second part, we zoom in on teaching first aid to your target students or pupils through microteaching. When you successfully complete the training, you will be certified and can call yourself 'First Aid Teacher Education'. This allows you to organize the courses 'First Aid' (basic course), 'Helper' (advanced course) and 'Resuscitation and defibrillation' for pupils or students of your own educational institute and to hand out your certificates!

All these courses are suitable for pupils or students aged sixteen and over, or who turn sixteen in the calendar year in which the course starts. To the students of the second grade you can award the certificate "Junior Helper". In addition, you also get access to all the didactic material of Belgian Red Cross-Flanders. Together we work on the first aid and resuscitation skills.

How long:
5 class days, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each time

€ 410 per person (*)

  • Belgian Red Cross-Flanders bills free of VAT.
