Your senior first aid instructor will revise your answers and help you with the practical work. It is an intelligent way to learn Senior First Aid at a pace that suits you.

This makes the process of assessing your competencies a productive and enjoyable learning experience. Your manual will answer all the questions you may have. We also encourage you to ask questions during the practical session in class. Safecity's courses are conducted in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
