How does a first aid course with Action-cards® proceed?

The course takes 2 hours, but the time can be lengthened according to your needs. 

The agenda for the first aid course for training in confident first aid is:

  • Introduction (15 min)
  • Training (from 1:30 hours including breaks)
  • You will be divided into teams of 5 people:
    • A victim, a first responder, a second responder, a Gamemaster, and a bystander.
    • During the training, you go to different Action-cards® 
      stations, each of which has an accident scenario that is relevant to you.
  • A round typically takes 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, you spend approximately 5 minutes for evaluation and feedback. 
  • The Gamemaster is responsible for the evaluation.
  • Overall evaluation (15 min)



Fill in the form and request, without financial commitment, the date and time that suits you best.

In general, you can say that the more you practice, the more confident you’ll be with Action-cards® and first aid. We’re working to get data in so that we can give concrete recommendations about cost-efficient training, when you train as little as possible, but still achieve the level you want.

We believe that you should do what you are most comfortable with. We know that many people find it difficult to remember what to do when in real situations. That is why we have developed these Action-cards® to help people who have to act in such situations. Action-cards® are used often by pilots, the armed forces, the police, and in the pre-hospital service, among others, precisely because they know how difficult it can be to remember important details in a critical situation.

No, you do not need an ACT-pack for confident first aid. We’ve only developed an ACT-pack to make your self-training as simple as possible.

We always adhere to international standards, for example, the European Resuscitation Council’s (erc.edu) or the American Heart Association’s (heart.org) first aid guidelines. When these guidelines are updated, we also update the content on our Action-cards®. Sometimes there are no clear first aid guidelines for a particular injury or illness. If this happens, we look extra carefully in scientific literature and consult with our strong international medical Action-cards® advisory board (https://action-cards.com/en/medical-advisory-board-en), which also reviews all our medical-related Action-cards®.

If you do not have a number of participants that fits the table of 5, then you make teams where there are slightly more than five. For example, you can have two “guests” on the team instead of just one guest, which is otherwise standard.
