Gain the confidence to get involved if something happens!
First Aid and CPR training is something everybody intends completing, then something happens, the hesitation that occurs prevents you from lending assistance to someone in need.
Imagine being somewhere with family or friends and there is a situation where First Aid and/or CPR is needed, the Emergency First Response Course will give you the confidence to get involved.
Emergency First Response Course goals
Increase access to CPR education, increase effectiveness and efficiency of instruction, improve skills retention and reduce barriers to action for basic life support providers
Provide a positive and nurturing learning environment that reduces participant anxiety, guilt and fear of imperfect performance
Teach a course that increases the percentage of CPR and first aid trained laypersons who use their skills without hesitation to assist those in need
Combine CPR and first aid into one Emergency Responder protocol
Teach a simple CPR and first aid protocol that promotes long-term memory retention by participants
Maximize participant skill development and practise time, while minimising instructor led knowledge development (lectures)
Teach a course following the latest ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) Basic Life Support guidelines, thus providing an internationally consistent course flexible enough to accommodate regional CPR and first aid protocols and cultural differences
Integrate participant independent study whenever possible for course efficiency and respect for valuable participant time
