To achieve desired goals in the first aid training, we can use different learning methods. We can choose simulation, which represents one of the active forms of learning. Within the simulations, we can select simulated scenarios to bring more reality into the learning process. With our research we wanted to evaluate the effectiveness of scenario-based first aid training. We included 65 students of Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Ljubljana. The experimental group was unlike the control group exposed to scenario-based learning during one-week first aid training. We collected the data with a questionnaire and evaluation paper, which enabled us to assess the students during the practical test. Our research has shown that pre-training with simulated scenarios improves provided first aid in case of a simulated accident. Keywords: scenarios; teaching; active learning; first aid
