In one year, around 475k Americans die from a cardiac arrest and with that, more than 350k of those occur outside of the hospital each year. It’s also been proven that bystander CPR improves survival rates. Rather if you are an employee needing training, a SCUBA diver, or even a parent, these courses will prepare you for events like those stated. 

We live in a dangerous world and sometimes people get hurt. First Response Training International’s First Aid Training will prepare you to render the appropriate assistance someone needs after an accident or injury until emergency personnel arrive. Providing First Aid makes the victim feel better and can help them achieve better health outcomes. In serious situations, First Aid can mean the difference between life and death.

Being prepared with First Aid knowledge and skills means you’re always ready to help people in need and make a real positive difference in a bad situation. These courses are OSHA* & ILCOR compliant.
