For the general public

More certificates

First aid begins with a sound basic knowledge. In 2012, lots of people signed up for a basic First Aid course at their local Red Cross branch. The 12-hour course includes how to deal with serious bleeding, choking and heart attacks. We issued 7,837 First Aid certificates in 2012.
People wanting to build on the first aid knowledge acquired on the basic course can attend the Helper follow-up course. This covers additional subjects such as fainting, hyperventilation and diabetes and hones participants’ first aid skills. Some 5,034 trainees were awarded the Helper certificate in 2012.

More training hours

In 2012, our instructors dispensed 13,664 hours of first aid training for adults, including training for the general public and the resuscitation and defibrillation training given as part of the Heart-safe scheme (interne link naar onderdeel Hartveilig). That is an increase of almost 7% compared with 2011.
