First Aid Courses

Accidents and medical emergencies can happen anywhere and anytime to anyone, make sure you are prepared

We offer a full range of courses provided by First Aid International, a UK based company. Our courses teach individuals how to respond to first aid or emergency situation, which may help to save lives. UPANDRUNNING is a DCAS (Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services) certified first aid training center and all our courses are delivered by our own highly experienced registered nurses, who are certified with First Aid International and also with DCAS.

Courses that we offer (all DCAS approved):

  • International Emergency First Aid with CPR and AED – 8 hours
  • Emergency First Aid at Work – 6 hours
  • Basic First Aid – 12 hours
  • Sports and Activity First Aid – 12 hours
  • Emergency Sports and Activity First Aid – 7 hours
  • Paediatric First Aid – 12 hours
  • Emergency Paediatric First Aid – 7 hours

First Aid is a legal requirement from the Dubai Municipality and it is an employer’s responsibility to make sure they have sufficient qualified first aiders. We can offer private group first aid training as per the requirement of your company.

Are you a parent?

Did you know that accidental injuries are the leading cause of death among children under 14 in the UAE? A study* found that drowning and falls each account for 10 per cent of accidental deaths among children. And yet worryingly, many of us leave our children in the care of other people who have little or no first aid training at all! Our Paediatric First Aid Course can help save your child’s life. Don’t have regrets – book yourselves (the parents), your family members, nannies/maids/or any caregivers onto a course now.
