First aid and medical training for airline crew / Aero medical aspects and first aid

Swiss AviationTraining provides instruction on behalf of its customer airlines to enable their cabin and cockpit personnel to deal with medical emergencies on board. SAT’s first aid and medical training covers identifying symptoms, administering first aid and the proper use of the medical equipment on board.

Our experienced and practically-minded instructors can draw on both medical training (as qualified nurses) and methodological and didactic qualifications (to at least SVEB 1 level), as well as many years of training experience.
