First aid for electrical accidents

First aid for electrical accidents provides you with the knowledge you need to know how to act in such an accident situation. An accident can occur when you least expect it, and this course is intended to give you sufficient knowledge so that you know what to do if an electrical accident occurs. Most electrical accidents end well, but getting electricity through the body from both high and low voltage can lead to serious or life-threatening personal injuries.

In order for you to be competent to provide first aid in the event of electrical accidents, in addition to this theoretical review, you must be trained in CPR (mouth-to-mouth and cardiac compression). The course satisfies the authorities' requirement for annual theoretical training in first aid for electrical accidents, except for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
