Emergency First Response

Emergency First Response training focuses on building confidence in lay rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency. Course participants learn easy to follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a non-stressful learning environment.

You will receive a self-study manual, which you can work through at your own pace and complete before starting the course. Within the course you will watch videos which break down the skills and enhance learning.

This section of the course is made of three topic areas: Primary care, Secondary care and CPR and AED use.

Primary Care (CPR) – This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies. You’ll practice nine skills for aiding patients who aren’t breathing and have no heartbeat. How to care for patients which may have a spinal injury, be in shock or have serious bleeding. You’ll learn to how to perform CPR and monitor the patient, so that you increase the chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.

Secondary Care (First Aid) – Many medical conditions are not life-threatening and emergency medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable. Throughout this course you will learn how to provide first aid that eases pain and reduces the risk of further harm. You’ll learn to assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.

CPR & AED – This course focuses on CPR training and teaching participants how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator). When workplace or governmental requirements specify this training, the CPR & AED course meets the need. This course is often integrated into First Aid at Work programs.
