Expat Club wants to be an international community that contributes positively to the lives of expats in Brussels and to the wider Brussels community. We often organise events that you would probably not do on your own, not in the least place because you may not speak Flemish or French. This is one of them.
During this 4-hours course you will learn the potentially life-saving technique of resuscitation. This is a specialised course that is finished with an official exam and therefore considerably more expensive, but we managed to keep the costs below €100 during the early-bird period. We do offer a discount of €15 to students, (officially) unemployed people, and those on welfare. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Woman Demonstrating CPR On Training Dummy In First Aid Class
This training teaches you how to resuscitate (reanimation) and how to use a defibrillator. This is a hands-on course that will not only provide theory, but also requires you to practice a lot with the objective of preparing you for an official exam at the end of the course. If you pass the exam you will obtain an official diploma that is valid for 5 years.
First aid CPR – clear airway
During the training we’ll go over and practice the 4 steps of how to approach a casualty: safety, approach casualty, correctly alarming the emergency services and first aid, control of consciousness and breathing and to place the casualty in a stabile sideways position.
