Teenagers are some of the best rescuers because of their willingness to help and their general sense of fearlessness. Wouldn't it be logical if, in addition to learning grammar, science and maths, every student across the UK also learnt basic CPR and first aid skills? Well, that's exactly what the free student first aid e-learning programme from ProTrainings aims to do!
Colchester MP Sir Bob Russell, who is Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary First Aid Group, has said: "I welcome this initiative. Those with knowledge of First Aid play a key role, often in saving lives, in so many ways in treating people who need immediate help because of a fall, cutting themselves, or in other ways injuring or hurting themselves. In Parliament I continue to campaign for First Aid to be made part of the National Curriculum. In the meantime I welcome those who are seeking to train young people in life-saving First Aid skills."

You never know when you will need CPR or first aid. Of the nearly 100,000 people who suffer cardiac arrest in the U.K. each year, 80% are not in a hospital, but are in their homes or workplaces and can appear healthy and happy minutes before.
Only about 1 out of every 4 cardiac arrest victims receive CPR, and as a result, most die. If these people receive CPR immediately after cardiac arrest, it can double or even triple their chances of survival.
Learning first aid could be the best thing that you ever do for your grandparent, friend, or a stranger on the street. By dedicating yourself for one hour to learning this skill, you can be prepared to be a hero to someone in need.
If you've ever dreamed of helping people as a career, learning this type of rescue skill will prepare you to be a future nurse, doctor, EMT or lifeguard. And first aid training is an essential skill for every babysitter to know.
