Qualifications and registrations

We are fully certified and registered by the following institutions and our courses are conform to their guidelines:

  • The Orange Cross (Het Oranje Kruis)
  • The Dutch Resuscitation Council (De Nederlandse Reanimatie Raad)
  • The European Resuscitation Council
  • The Dutch Institute for Company First Aid (NIBHV)
  • The Dutch Red Cross
  • DAN Europe & International
  • The Dutch Organisation of First Aid Instructors (De Nederlandse Organisatie Docenten E.H.B.O.)
  • The International Liaison Committee On Resuscitation.
  • The Chamber of Commerce of The Hague No 27340192 (Kamer van Koophandel Haaglanden).



Certified professional casualties are part of certain courses. Their task is to simulate the reality of certain situations and accidents. They can simulate wounds and act out complaints which match precisely the condition of a real casualty.


Our vision:

  • All parties to a course form ONE team: students, casualties, instructor. They work together to achieve a single aim: a successful and satisfied team.


  • The theoretical part of the course/training is given via Powerpoint presentations and other material.
  • You do not only learn what to do in some situations but also why you need to apply certain techniques and not others. In our opinion, medical background information and understanding of the casualty’s condition are important factors.


  • First Aid is an “ACTION” subject. This is why we allocate maximum individual attention to the practice of the techniques.
  • You can be confident that you will truly be able to assist a casualty in a safe and efficient way.
  • During the course, students practice with professional casualties and with each other.

Course material:

  • The costs of all course material are included in the tuition fee per student.
  • Each course uses specific course material.
  • By material, you can think of: course book, use of the resuscitation dummy, A.E.D. trainer, Act Fast Choking trainer, bandages, hand-outs.
  • All course material is available in English, Dutch, French.


Diploma / certificate:

  • All our courses carry an official diploma or certificate.
  • For the non-certified courses/training, students receive a certificate of attendance.
