Standard First Aid

This is a course for the general community desiring national CPR/AED and Standard (Basic) First Aid certification at the community

This is a course for the general community desiring national CPR/AED and Standard (Basic) First Aid certification at the community
level. The course is a comprehensive educational program promoting objective driven and performance-based training that has an
integrated curriculum. The curriculum’s first aid component includes training in scene and victim assessment, caring for injuries,
caring for medical emergencies, injury prevention, and emergency moves. The curriculum’s CPR component includes training in
adult and pediatric CPR, using an automated external defibrillation (AED), caring for airway obstruction, and preventing and caring
for heart attack and stroke. This course satisfies the required medical content defined by the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA) for workplace CPR/AED & Standard First Aid training. The course is ideal for individuals seeking
certification for job requirements, as well as those just desiring to learn lifesaving skills and information. This hands-on course covers
content defined by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), and promulgated through the publication of the
most current “CPR and ECC Guidelines” by the American Heart Association. Students receive the most current content through a
variety of educational methods and must practice the required lifesaving skills on manikins and through simulations, drills and
exercises to earn certification cards.

Students must attend the entire 2 hour course, completing all required course skills satisfactorily. Skills are practiced and remediated
using detailed skill performance sheets required to be mastered for certification. Team management simulations are also utilized. A
final written group cognitive assessment is provided that tests the lesson objectives, is consistent with the OSHA/ILCOR content, and
similar in structure, detail, and format of other national training organizations (e.g. American Heart Association).
