Rail and Construction Specific First Aid

First aid skills are best maintained and updated as new techniques and technologies like the AED (Automated External Defibrillator) are developed. Up to date first aid qualification makes an impressive addition to a résumé and gives the confidence and ability to calmly provide aid when faced with a medical emergency.
