First aid certificate courses recognised by the Government

First aid certificate courses recognised by the Government

First aid knowledge not only means the difference between life and death but also helps one determine the sequence and the priority of first-aid treatments during an emergency. First aid knowledge and skills promote safety awareness at home, at work, at play, on streets and highways. Having learnt first aid, a person is prepared to assist others wisely and is able to distinguish between what to do and what not to do. 

Holders of a valid certificate in first aid issued from organisations like Hong Kong St. John Ambulance Association, Hong Kong Red Cross or the Auxiliary Medical Service may enjoy an advantage in job hunting. Below are some first aid certificate courses recognised by the HKSAR Government.
