Course Description

This course provides a framework for learning basic skills that may save a life or prevent further injury. The American Heart Association is dedicated to decrease death and disability when emergency happens. The American Heart Association believes that YOU can make a difference by providing immediate and effective care.

First Aid is the immediate care that you give someone with an illness or injury before someone with more advanced training arrives and takes over. First aid may help someone recover more completely or more quickly and may mean the difference between life and death. Most of the time you’ll give first aid for minor illnesses or injuries. You may also give first aid for a more serious illness or injury, such as a heart attack or major bleeding. This course will also prepare participants to preform high quality CPR and use an AED effectively.
