Emergency First Response Course

emergency first response:

Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) and AED aims to teach participants how to respond to life-threatening emergencies. The course focuses on primary care through a combination of easy to follow knowledge development sessions and practical skill’s development. This method helps to make sure participants have the confidence in their ability to provide care when emergency situations arise. The various sessions and skills are all delivered using a combination of DVD / Video shown on a large screen and both verbal and practical demonstrations given by the Instructor.

The Primary Care (CPR) skills taught in this course are Scene Assessment, Barrier Use, Primary Assessment, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), Serious Bleeding Management, Shock Management, Spinal Injury Management, Conscious and Unconscious Choking Management, and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Use.
