Will the course take place?

All first aid courses are allowed again. When there are enough participants, the course will take place. Fortunately this is almost always the case.

Where does the course take place?

The course takes place at P. Czn Hooftlaan 14, Eindhoven. The building is easily accessible by car, bike or public transport. It’s approximately a 20 minute walk from Eindhoven station, or a couple of minutes by bus. Please note: don’t navigate to Kusje erop EHBO or First Aid Eindhoven in Google Maps, because this will lead you to our office.

Where to park?

There is a free parking lot for visitors of P. Czn Hooftlaan 14, the entrance for this is located on the Tesselschadelaan. Here you will also find a bicycle parking. Please call 0611645274 when you’re standing in front of the gate. The instructor/hostess will then open the gate. To prevent overloading the parking lot we ask you to come by bicycle or public transport as much as possible or to travel together. If the parking lot has no more space, paid parking is available in the neighbourhood. A large paid parking lot is available a few minutes walking distance from the course location, at the Bomansplaats.

What to wear?

For CPR you have to sit on your knees. To facilitate this, trousers or jeans are preferable. Dresses or skirts are possible, but might prove less suitable. We request our students to not wear lipstick, including ‘waterproof’ and ‘smudge proof’ varieties. Lipstick can stain our CPR manikins and has proven very hard to remove.

How will the course look like taking the corona rules into account?

The protocol set up by the branch organisation can be found here (in Dutch)
The rules of the RIVM can be found here.
From 25 september, we don’t have to keep 1,5 meter distance. From then courses can be given as before.

  • A corona pass is not nesecary 
  • Do you have cold symptoms? Get tested and contact us to discuss the next steps
  • The recovery position, choking and bandages can be practised with fellow participants. If you prefer to keep your distance, it is possible to practice with manikins.
  • CPR is practised with manikins. 3 students use 1 CPR manikin together. Because of the mechanism inside the manikin air leaves the manikin in a different place and via a filter. In this way you don’t inhale each others breath. For every student there are individual faces to place on the manikins.
  • The airways of the CPR manikins will be replaced after every lesson and the bandage materials will be thrown away.
  • To get the certificate it is mandatory to do rescue breaths.
  • Hand desinfectant and alcohol wipes are availble

We provide coffee, tea, water and a small treat.  For courses > 4 hours we provide a lunch with sandwiches, salad and soup. Vegetaration options are available. In case you follow a vegan or other diet, please bring your own lunch.

Of course that is possible. Let us know beforehand so we can arrange for a suitable room.
