First Aid comes in handy on many occasions, whether it is within your household, at a get-together, at work or in public.

Have you taken a certification course ever in First Aid? If yes, was it for personal reasons or for work? Has it helped you or anyone else?

I have taken a first aid, anaphylaxis and asthma course due to working in child care.
It has helped me understand what to do and have the knowledge in a situation but I have never been faced with one where I have needed that information.
Unfortunately I am not first aid certified, although I have been meaning to undertake this course for a long time. I think I shall defer it no longer than the end of this year.
No I'm not.
I feel bad saying that!
Maybe I should do something about it.It does cost a little bit, and I have really never had much in the way of money.But will give it some good consideration for sure!
I was the first aid officer at my last job for many years and went through the training 3 times as it expired. The most notable use was when a small boy stuck his hand under a very hot tap and his hand swelled up instantly. My first aid training kicked in and I ran his hand under cold water for close to 30 minutes while waiting for an ambulance. That action saved his hand from massive scars and trauma.
Wow, Sarah, that was wonderful that you did the 1st aid course. He was a very lucky boy to have had you helping him.

No, but I plan to be.
by Vee
Yes I have, and yes it was a requirement of my work, and yes I have used it and yes I am very happy that I did.
Not any longer. In a previous job, had to be, as part of the job.
Knowledge gained was no burden.
