First Aid is an integral part of the curriculum for Medical and Nursing students. Whilst students train First Aid as a course unit in their first year, First Aid International has a tailor-made First Aid curriculum that meets the expectations of Uganda Nursing &Midwives Examination Board (UNMEB), Nursing schools, Medical schools and Universities and enables students to gain knowledge and hands-on skills of emergency care in the pre-hospital setting. This course further certifies them as accredited First Aiders and can soon have opportunities to work with major pre hospital care providers in Uganda to gain more experience.
Upon successful completion of the course, trainees are issued an internationally recognised certificate of recognition valid for 2 years.
