The Standard First Aid course has been designed for people interested in learning comprehensive first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills for the workplace and home.
This course is more intensive and covers more topics compared to our Emergency First Aid, such as spinal and poison related injuries.
Standard First Aid Course Contents:
- The Red Cross
- Preparing to respond
- The EMS system
- Check, Call, Care
- Airway emergencies
- Breathing and Circulation emergencies
- First aid for respiratory and cardiac arrest
- Wound care
- Head and spine injuries
- Bone, muscle, and joint injuries
- Sudden Medical Emergencies
- Environmental Emergencies
- Poisons (includes opioid poisoning)
Our Standard First Aid with CPR C & AED course is also offered in our signature Blended Learning course format.
Blended Learning courses are composed of an online component that runs for about half of the regular course duration. Our online component covers first aid theory topics, and you can complete it in segments or all at once.
However, you must complete it prior to attending the in-person component. The in-person course component will cover all necessary practical first aid training topics. Blended Learning courses are convenient for students with busy schedules or those that prefer less in-person classroom time.
