Basic First Aid Training

As of July 1, 2018, an amendment to Section 35 of the Firearms Act requires that applicants for a firearm acquisition permit or firearm license must present a document proving the completion of at least 16 hours of first aid training. If owning a gun and shooting is your free choice, first aid is a necessity for life to ensure the safety and security of yourself and your loved ones. The course costs €75.

Training on swelling

To meet the requirements of the Weapons Act and to ensure you have the skills and confidence you need for life, we run a 16-hour basic first aid course.

Upon completion of the training, we will issue a certificate as a prerequisite for applying for an acquisition permit or firearms licence. The training, and the certificate issued on completion, is also suitable for applicants for a driving licence and for workplace first-aiders.

The training will be conducted by Aivar Kärner, who has been working in the field of emergency medicine since 2010, and currently Aivar’s daily work is as a nurse-brigade leader of Tallinn Ambulance and lecturer-teacher at Tallinn Health Care College (RN 12913, BA, MSc).

DURATION: 16 academic hours (including 8 academic hours in the form of in-service training and 8 as independent work).
