First aid trainings

An accident can happen at any time. It could happen to you, or you might be a bystander. Everyone should be aware of his responsibility towards a human being in distress. This means that every citizen should have basic first aid knowledge.

The Luxembourg Red Cross runs first aid courses in Luxembourgish, French, German and English.

The Luxembourg Red Cross is officially approved as a training organisation in the field of first aid. All courses are given exclusively by instructors appointed by the Ministère de l’Intérieur (Ministry for Internal Affairs).
