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 event is one of them!

Imagine if something happened to a member of your family or a colleague: would you know what to do? What should you do when a child, your spouse or a friend becomes badly wounded. Can you take care of it yourself? And would you know when to call a doctor, visit a hospital or call an ambulance? During this 3-hours course you will learn what you can do yourself, and when you should get professional help.

We believe it is very important for people to be able to help one another.  As such Expat Club will host official Red Cross training sessions to teach our members the skills they need to be able to help others if necessary.  With the Belgian Red Cross-Flanders, you are guaranteed expertise and experience. During this first session you will learn the basics of first-aid. Follow-up sessions are planned as well, including a resuscitation training. Upon successful completion of the examination, a statutory certificate of competence will be issued.

About the Red Cross Flanders
We are an independent volunteer organisation. Under the umbrella of the Belgian Red Cross, we are part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Our mission is threefold: to defend the interests of vulnerable people both at home and abroad, to be proactive in emergency-management, promoting self-reliance and organising blood supply, and to care for vulnerable individuals. In all our activities, we rely heavily on volunteers.” (source: Red Cross Flanders website)

Location
We are meeting in the Expat Club offices in The Louise Center on Avenue Louise 279. You are welcome from 18h30, but we actually start at 19h00. Trams 93 and 94, bus 38 and 60, Vleurgat/Louise stop. And just a 5-8 minutes walking from tram 7 and 81, and bus 54 if you get off at Avenue Louise. The entrance is right across the tram stop.

    Hello! I´m definitely interested in this course but if it finally takes place on the proposed date, I won´t be able to make it as I won´t be in Belgium. In that case, I would be interested if the event is to be repeated in the future 🙂

    Hello, Edgar,
    Unfortunately I will not be in Brussels on that date. But I would very much like to take this course sometime, specially if it would be offered on the weekend (should it be possible.) Kind regards, Andreia

      Hi Andreia,

      Too bad you cannot join this time, but hopefully we can repeat it another time in 2018 during the weekend. You are probably not the only one who can’t join, but who wants to. Just keep on following the calendar and hopefully it works out next time!
