Public transportation drivers meet on a daily basis an array of people from various age groups.
As we all know, medical emergencies simply can’t be predicted. There won’t always necessarily be someone who can provide First Aid treatment. On the other hand, if drivers have basic knowledge in First Aid treatment, they will be able to save lives. All they would have to do is respond to the emergency until a certified medical team arrives. In the 18-hour Public Transportation Drivers First Aid Training, trainees will learn about common emergencies. They’ll grapple with cardiac emergencies, strokes, unconsciousness, foreign object suffocation, various injuries, fractures, etc.
They will also practice subjects such as CPR, bandaging, splitting, etc. Thus, in cases of emergency, they will be able to identify the injury and provide an initial life-saving medical treatment. Trainees who met the course requirements will be awarded a First Aid Certificate at the end of the course.
