    Can you tell me more about the course?

  • Bumrungrad CPR and First Aid Class follows Emergency First Response curriculum which provides 2 years of internationally recognized certification. The course includes: Primary and secondary care for infants, children and adults plus AED training. Students will first watch videos of scenarios and skills demonstration. The rest of the day will be dedicated to instructor-assisted practice of skills on mannequins and each other.

    We offer a maximum of 12 students to 1 instructor per class.

  • Q4 :

    How long does it take?

  • Class starts at 9 am and finishes about 5 pm. There will be 2 breaks in between the sessions and 1 lunch. Breaks are included in the course fee but lunch will be at the student’s discretion.  
  • Q5 :

    How much does it cost?

  • The course fee is 4,000 baht and includes materials, certification and snack breaks. Lunch will be at the student’s discretion. Course fee is valid at this moment but may change depending upon cost of materials, which are imported from overseas. 
  • Q6 :

    Is there a discount for a group who want to join the class?

  • There is no discount for groups as the course fee only covers the cost of materials and instructors fee. The hospital has offered this course as not-for-profit community service.  
  • Q7 :

    Is there a minimum number of students to hold the class?

  • Yes. A minimum of 6 students are required to hold the class. If we have less than 6 students, we will inform all students who have signed up for that particular class to move to the next scheduled date, usually in 2 months’ time.  We regret that we cannot refund the money as materials would have already been sent to you following payment.  
  • Q8 :

    What do I wear?

  • Comfortable clothing (preferably pants) is recommended as you will be on the floor most of the time practicing your skill. A warm sweater or jacket will be handy as the training room can be quite chilly after a while.  
  • Q9 :

    What if I have a group and would like instructor to teach at my venue?

  • We would encourage everyone to come to one of our public classes. However, should you have a minimum of 12 students, we may be able to schedule a class in your venue, depending upon the availability of instructors and their schedule. All of our instructors are actually full time employees of the hospital who offer their days off to teach the class. Hence the class is only offered on a weekend.  It is quite challenging for us to schedule a weekday course and there will be an additional fee of 300 baht per student for transport fee as we would need to transport all of our equipment and materials to the venue and back.  
  • Q10 :

    What if I sign up, something happens and I cannot take the class on my scheduled date?

  • There is no refund; however, you may opt to postpone your participation in the next available scheduled date.
