Why Choose First Aid Training for Driver CPC?
Professional drivers spend much of their day behind the wheel of a vehicle and travel many miles. It is, therefore, quite likely that they will come across road accidents, or may be involved in one themselves. Where there are casualties following a road traffic collision, it is important that the correct actions are taken in order to preserve life and prevent deterioration before the emergency services arrive on scene. Having first aid training provides the skills and confidence to make a difference. Indeed in many countries it is a legal requirement to have first aid training before learning to drive.
There is no assessment on this course, where training is provided in a relaxed, non-threatening environment. Who knows when it may turn out to be the best day of a driver’s career.
