Anyone, of any age, can enroll in the Emergency First Response™ CPR and AED certification course. You will find it easy to follow the performance-based theory lessons and practical skill objectives.
Your certificate will confirm the level of training that you attained and it will be internationally recognized and valid for two full years (24 months) from the course completion date.
The dynamic course philosophy of the CPR AED certification means all successful students will receive their completion card immediately after meeting all the training objectives.
Moreover, the Emergency First Response CPR and AED course follows the emergency considerations and protocols as developed by all the members of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (or ILCOR).
Current members include the American Heart Association (AHA), the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC), the Resuscitation Council of Asia (RCA), and many others.
You should not expect to control all the variables in a real emergency. But, knowing how to provide adequate care, and react appropriately, often tips the balance in favour of a full recovery instead of a long-term disability (e.g. life versus death).
Furthermore, the person that you save when you perform CPR or use an AED defibrillator could be a loved-one, a close friend, or a colleague at work.
Important: Every second counts! Conducting prompt and early defibrillation of a patient with an abnormal heart rhythm (i.e. ventricular fibrillation) is vital for increasing their chances of survival.
The curriculum overviews the importance of using crisis medical equipment. Hence, you will get to practice using an AED and performing CPR on a simulation manikin. The course content also covers:
Participants achieve these objectives through a combination of scenario role-play in classroom sessions, a video presentation, student knowledge reviews, and a final exam.
Note: The course price includes the Emergency First Response AED completion card, participant manual, and a wall certificate.
The Emergency First Response™ CPR and Automated External Defibrillator course represents entry-level training in:
Using Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) can extend the window of opportunity while rescuers activate local medical response personnel, (EMS) or arrange for evacuation to the nearest appropriate medical facility (such as a hospital).
Knowing how and when to respond to someone suffering a heart attack or sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) are the two main skills you will learn.
You will learn how to:
