Standard First Aid & CPR-C
16 hours (full course)
STANDARD FIRST AID
provides comprehensive training covering all aspects of first aid and CPR. Standard First Aid incorporates all of Emergency First Aid and is designed for those who require a more in-depth understanding of first aid including: legal implications of first aid treatment, spinal injuries, heat or cold injuries, bone and joint injuries, chest injuries, and medical emergencies. Includes CPR-C certification.
The first aid program is not restricted to aquatic candidates. The Lifesaving Society's first aid awards train non-aquatic staff (camp, playground, maintenance, etc.) and the general public.
CPR-C (Adult, Child & Infant)
covers all aspects of CPR skills and theory for adult, child and infants, including two-rescuer CPR skills. CPR-C includes the importance of early defibrillation and how to use an AED.
