Course Outline

The training is delivered by an approved trainer, according to the National Association of First Aid standard.

While both the PSC1 and SST courses teach first aid skills applicable in personal and domestic settings, the SST course is more specifically focused on a professional context. Both courses cover the following basic themes :

  • Prevention of everyday accidents
  • Protection
  • The signs and managing obstruction of the airways
  • Hemorrhages
  • Loss of consciousness (Lateral Safety Position)
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Discomfort
  • Skin and joint trauma
  • Burns


At the end of the training, the student should be able to:

  • Protect themselves, the victim and any witnesses, alert the emergency services and prevent the victim’s condition from worsening while waiting for help to arrive.
  • Apply these measures in particular to young children.

Teaching and evaluation methods

  • Face-to-face training, case studies, interactive presentations, practical demonstrations and sessions and role play simulations.
  • A French First Aid certification (PSC 1/SST) is issued to trainees who have actively participated in all of the training and who have followed a practical situation.
  • The certification is issued by the UDPS95, which is a member of the National Association of First Aid.
