CPR and First-Aid certification course and training
Our CPR and First-Aid course and training modules are designed to go as in-depth as possible while still keeping the course load down to a minimal time commitment. See a brief overview of all of the modules listed below, or look into the course itself for a first-hand view of everything it has to offer.
- Good Samaritan Law – Before getting down to the technical aspects of CPR and First-Aid, our course will explain the legal backing of such service. Make sure to read carefully, and gain a thorough understanding of your rights as a CPR & First-Aid practitioner.
- CPR – Short for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, CPR training teaches a particular series of techniques which are designed to assist infants, children, and adults in need. Our helpful videos and photographs will illustrate the entire process, offering you a complete understanding.
- AED – AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator, which is a device used to resuscitate patients after CPR has proved ineffective. Our instructions will provide thorough details on how to operate the equipment, and how to handle various emergency situations.
- First-Aid – Think of First-Aid as a complete toolkit to handle all of the most common medical emergencies. Our course module will introduce you to all of the tools involved and the best way to implement them for patient safety and health. If you want to go more in depth, see our First-Aid certification course.
- Wounds – Get all of the up-close and personal details you need through our wounds module. Punctures, cuts, and scrapes of all kinds are covered, informing you how to respond appropriately and without hesitation. Short example clips will explain all of the most common treatments and wound dressings so you are prepared the next time an emergency strikes.
- Heart – Heart attacks, chest pain, and respiratory arrest are all real-life situations that first-responders can expect to encounter at some point in their life. Understand the anatomy of the heart and lungs to learn the proper way to respond when the need arises.
- Fractures – Legs, arms, hands, and just about any other part of your body with bones are susceptible to fractures. However, sprains and torn muscles can be just as severe. Learn how to handle all of these emergencies and more with diagrams, videos, and clear written instructions.
- Burns – Can you identify the difference between a first-, second-, and third-degree burn just by looking? So, you will be able to, and also know how to act within a first-response setting with this module. Understand how burns can sink through layers of skin and cause different types of damage right here.
- Poisoning – There are a wide range of different substances, natural and man-made which can cause stomach-aches, dizziness, vomiting, or even death. In the most serious cases, time is of the essence, making first-responders an indispensable part of the medical community.
- Hemorrhages – From the tiniest scrapes to the most severe wounds, knowing how to disinfect and wrap stop hemorrhaging is one of the most basic and crucial skills in a first-responder’s repertoire. Arm yourself with the knowledge you need to help those around you.
- Choking – An especially useful module for parents with kids who love to put anything and everything into their tiny mouths. However, choking is experienced by adults more often than you might guess, meaning CPR & First-Aid certified people are always in high demand.
- Injuries – From an average, everyday black eye to the most dangerous chemical splashes, injuries come in all shapes and sizes. The goal of CPR & First-Aid certification is to prepare you for each and every one of them, so you can approach an emergency situation with care and expertise.
- Shock – Gain a full understanding of all three examinations to determine whether your patient is experiencing a stroke. Seizures and bodily shock are also covered, making this module especially important for those who know someone at risk for these conditions.
