What is the value of first aid training?

Emergencies call for fast action. Sometimes there is no way an emergency vehicle can make it to an injured person on time, so you need to take charge to help save a life. The medics will take over when they arrive, but in the meantime performing first aid, CPR, or using an AED can make the difference in the outcome after an incident has occurred.

This course will teach you what you should and should not do. In some situations, it is best not to move the injured person but offer other life-saving techniques until the medics arrive. It is important to always call 911 in emergencies and stay on the line with them while taking care of the person in need of assistance.
