Students can choose from three levels for CPR and AED training. All levels (A, C, and HCP) include adult CPR and AED training, as well as basic first aid. The 2010 Basic Life Support (BLS) guidelines are used during CPR training, focused on the updated pathway and techniques in providing compressions and defibrillation.
Basic First Aid
Basic first aid classes cover a variety of situations – from simple cuts to concussions. One of the topics discussed during basic first aid classes is curative treatment for infections – or treatment with antibiotics. This is important for simple fevers or cough and colds – to infected wounds or wounds that are exposed to the environment for a long period of time. Antibiotics should be taken exactly for the prescribed number of days, no more, no less.
