Crash Course at Benenden Hospital

"A blocked airway can kill someone in three to four minutes but it can take more than eight minutes for an ambulance to arrive. A simple procedure such as opening the airway can save a life, whilst waiting for emergency help to arrive.”

The CRASH First Aid course has been designed for young, new, existing drivers, bikers, cyclists and all who use our roads.
CRASH Course was developed due to the large number of deaths and serious injuries that occur on our roads each year.
The CRASH Course teaches the priceless life-saving skills needed in providing effective Pre-Hospital First Aid skills at the scene of a Road Traffic Collision; all under the instruction of ex Fire, Police and Ambulance Service staff with many years of experience.
Candidates who attend the CRASH Course are also educated on the dangers of breaking road traffic laws and the consequences that these actions will have.
The major component that brings CRASH course to life is the effective use of actors with dramatic, realistic casualty make up. This style of training is typically used by the British Armed Forces to produce the most effective Medics and First Aiders in the world. Presented with these challenging road traffic collision scenarios, the newly attained First Aid skills will truly be put to the test, an experience that can potentially increase a safer use of our roads.
Together, we can have more life-savers on our roads that will potentially save yours or a loved one’s life.
In addition:
The Crash course will also award the HSE Approved Emergency First Aid at Work qualification which is a great advantage for employment and employers.
