First aid course

Your driver training begins with the first aid course. This compulsory 10-hour course allows you to acquire the basics of how to react in case of an accident, how to call for help and how to provide first aid while waiting for help to arrive. Any road user can one day be confronted with an emergency situation, for himself or for others: it is important to know how to react and to be able to provide emergency first aid.

Goal

The first aid course, also called Samaritans, aims at teaching you the right reflexes in case of an emergency, in case someone close to you is victim of an accident. This first aid course is not affiliated to the Samaritan movement but it provides you with all the necessary notions to pass your driving license in Geneva, just like the Samaritan movement. These notions will also be useful outside of driving: an incident can happen in any situation of daily life, and this knowledge will allow you to better react in the event of an incident.

Description of the course

This course is designed to teach you the key concepts of how to react in the event of an accident, how to help the victim and how to optimize the time until help arrives. At the end of the course, you will be able to provide first aid to a victim of an accident.

During these 10 hours of classes, you will learn:

  • Comment te comporter dans une situation d’urgence (dégagement d’urgence, mesures immédiates pour sauver la vie…)
  • How to keep your cool in difficult situations and remain efficient
  • How to transmit important information to professional helpers
  • Provide first aid to victims, such as: placing victims in a safe position, performing an effective cardiac massage, controlling a hemorrhage and many others.

This course is divided into two parts. The first part is theoretical and will teach you the theory of emergency situations.
