Course overview

First aid responders will know how to make an initial response to work related accidents and use commonly accepted first aid practices for treating the injured prior to possible referral for medical treatment. This program includes an overview of the major changes affecting first aid responders in the 2005 Guidelines for First Aid sponsored by the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association. This program does not qualify as first aid certification. It is intended to be used as a review between certifications.
