    Upworkshop / FIRST AID (NL)

    How do you respond to minor accidents at home or in digs? How do you help a housemate or family member who is injured or choking? And how do you recognise a sudden cardiac arrest and start life-saving CPR?

    In short: in a few hours you will learn how to help or save someone.
