First Aid Courses in The Hague
2020-03-04 | By ACCESS
ACCESS is delighted to share that we will be offering English language First Aid Skills Training courses starting in September 2021. Open to all who would like to learn or brush up on their First Aid skills and of particular value for parents of young children. We are delighted to be able to work with Linda Malley on this project, as well as our partners at Big Ben Kids in Wassenaar -Schoolstraat 76 2242 KG Wassenaar. Together we are sure this course will benefit many – for now, in The Hague area only, and some online. Register here.
Linda Malley has been providing this course to and through many organisations in the Netherlands. The feedback is impressive, as is the knowledge she shares. Among the topics covered are: caring for unresponsive breathing casualties; CPR; choking; wounds; bleeding; shock and seizures. Some hands-on examples of what to do with minor injuries – sprains and strains; head injury; burns, bites and stings, severe allergic reaction; heat exhaustion and asthma, will also be covered.
Linda Bosma-Malley trained as a Registered General Nurse in the UK, specialising in Paediatrics. Having worked in Neurology as a nurse in the Netherlands and as a First Aid Trainer during her family’s time in South Africa, Linda understands the importance of providing people with the skills and confidence to respond effectively to accidents or sudden illness. Linda is a registered and certified First Aid Trainer, qualified to teach and assess a full range of first aid courses.
She has been providing first aid courses in and around The Hague since 2008 for adults and teenagers from a wide variety of organisations, including schools, day-care centres, sporting clubs, scout groups, community and parenting groups. Linda is passionate about teaching people the necessary skills that can make the difference when it really counts.
Course Options & Details
This course is currently scheduled to take place on Saturdays and Sundays, on the dates noted below. Class sizes do have a maximum capacity – but, if there is a greater need we will see if we can accommodate by scheduling additional course dates. An online course is also available (see dates). All courses are in English.
The course was great, just what I was looking for, very practical, intense, and super useful. The teacher was great, very clear, and lovely person. Me & my partner had a great time, we enjoyed the class, it was definitely worth the trip from Amsterdam. I already recommended the class to other people/parents, and will recommend it every time I can. The relief I felt after doing the class and feeling more prepared for my expecting baby is amazing.
