Basic First Aid: Timely assistance during medical and trauma emergencies can make the difference not only between life and death but also quality of life and speed of recovery, as well as prevention of secondary injuries. This course teaches concepts for recognition of injuries and illnesses of many types and the treatments which are most beneficial in the first minutes of care and prior to EMS arrival. Both American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) and American Heart Association (AHA) curriculums are offered, depending on individual need or certification requirements. They both meet OSHA, DOT, and MSHA requirements.
Time: Approximately 2-3 hours, depending on class size.
CPR/AED: This most basic of CPR classes is intended for virtually anyone who is interested in learning life-saving skills, regardless of experience level. Not only does this course familiarize students with concepts and proper application of CPR principles, it also incorporates AED (Automated External Defibrillator) training, which has been proven to markedly increase the chances of survival in adults who experience sudden cardiac arrest. AED’s are rapidly becoming a standard piece of equipment in many places of employment, as well as schools, churches, etc.
Time: Approximately 2-4 hours depending on class size.
Healthcare Provider CPR (BLS): This course is a requirement for most healthcare providers and incorporates advanced skills and training, to include some airway adjuncts and physiological/anatomical discussions.
Time: Initial course lasts approximately 4-5 hours. Renewal classes are much shorter.
Basic Emergency Care: This class incorporates four modules that taken together will give the lay rescuer the minimum level of knowledge/skills needed to manage the first few minutes of many medical/trauma emergencies. The modules are:
Emergency Action Steps: Assessment of the scene and victim.
Basic Life Support: Includes CPR/AED, airway management, and oxygen therapy.
Basic First Aid: For injuries/illnesses.
Time: This course can take from 6-8 hours depending on class size.
Bloodborne Pathogens: This course explains these pathogens and modes of transmission, as well as ways to reduce exposures. It may be used to help satisfy OSHA BBP standards, and it has been awarded two CE’s for dental offices in Maryland.
Time: Depending on class participation, it can take two hours.
ACLS/PALS: Both of these advanced courses can be taught on-site and at your convenience. We have taught these classes in dental suites and surgery centers. As long as there is room to practice realistic advanced scenarios, we can accommodate your needs.
