First aid is the immediate care for victims of injuries or sudden illness before professional medical treatment is available. It not only involves the victim’s physical condition and emotional state but the entire emergency situation. This one-hour training course will focus on how to use a systematic approach to evaluate an emergency situation and respond to basic first aid situations before the arrival of the Emergency Medical
Services (EMS). Note: This training should not be used as the primary basis for any first aid certification. It is intended to provide the learner with knowledge-based training only. This training should be accompanied with a performance-based component provided by a certified first aid instructor. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements.
