Background: Injuries and accidents are essential issues in public health, where the school teachers are considered the first caregivers in schools. Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of an educational program on first aid (FA) knowledge, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills, and teacher self-confidence among school teachers. Methods: One-group pretest–posttest preexperimental design was conducted. Three schools were enrolled using simple random sampling, and 40 teachers were participated. The Wilcoxon signed-ranks test was performed to compare the pre- and posttests' mean scores. Results: The mean posttest scores of FA knowledge, CPR skills, and self-confidence were significantly higher than the mean pretest scores (P < 0.01). Conclusion: The educational program was effective in improving FA knowledge, CPR skills, and teachers' self-confidence.
