First aid gestures

Anyone may witness an accident or a loss of consciousness, and may be able to save a life. With these first aid-training courses, you will learn the appropriate gestures in case of emergency. You will then be able to help a person in danger, wounded, unconscious or in a vital emergency pending the arrival of medical first aid professionals.

At the end of the training, you will receive a free first aid certificate.

First-aid training courses in French and Luxembourgish

The City of Luxembourg and many municipalities in Luxembourg organise free first-aid training courses.

It is also mandotory in Luxembourg companies to train a certain number of staff in first aid, as well as to have a first aid place. The minimum number of rescuers must be 5% of the personnel in a commercial or administrative type company, 10% in other cases.

Red Cross or Administration des Services de Secours

The program of these first-aid training courses is made up of 14 sessions of 2 hours and associates theory and practice. The courses are offered in French and Luxembourgish. Either the Luxembourg Red Cross or the Administration des Services de Secours (emergency services: 112) organises such training courses in different communes of the programme.

The courses close with a test in front of a jury, at the end of which you receive your first-aid certificate.
