The Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR), Secondary Care (First Aid) & Care for Children course teach people how to provide emergency care for someone in need. These courses make learning easy by providing a non-stressful environment in which participants practice and apply emergency care skills. These courses are designed to: 1) help participants remember appropriate emergency care procedures during times of need, and 2) encourage participants to apply those procedures to assisting those needing emergency care.
The course is divided into three segments; knowledge development, skill development, and scenario practice, and into three categories; Primary Care (CPR), Secondary Care (First Aid) and Care for Children. You can choose to do the whole course, or select Primary Care, Secondary Care or Care for Children.
No minimum age, and available to non-divers.
