American Red Cross CPR & First Aid: Initial (Full Day) Certification Course

Friday, April 26, 2019, 9:00 AM

The purpose of this American Red Cross First Aid/CPR course is to help participants recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac, breathing, and first aid emergencies. This course teaches skills needed to give immediate care to a suddenly injured or ill person until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over. This course equips foster parents and group home providers to recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac, breathing, and fist aid emergencies. Participants learn and review skills needed to give immediate dare to a suddenly injured or ill person until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over. This course emphasizes the need to rapid medical assistance in a emergency and provides instruction on appropriate care for a variety of injuries and sudden illnesses that lay responses may encounter. Red Cross certification means that on a particular date an instructor verified that a participant demonstrated competency in all required skills taught in the course. Competency is defined as being able to demonstrate correct decision-making, sequence care steps properly, and proficiently complete all required skills without any coaching or assistance. To complete the course successfully, the participant must:          Attend all class sessions          Participate in all course activities          Demonstrate competency in all required skills          Successfully participate in an end-of-course scenario   This course reflects the 2010 Consensus on Science for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) and the Guidelines 2010 for First Aid. These treatment recommendations and related training guidelines have been reviewed by the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, a panel of nationally recognized experts in fields that include emergency medicine, occupational health, sports medicine, school and public health, emergency medical services (EMS), aquatics, emergency preparedness and disaster mobilization.  Class begins at 9:00 am and is scheduled through 5:00 pm. Class may end earlier depending on class size and participant skill levels. Late arrivals are not permitted. Lunch is on your own. Sign in begins at 8:45 am. Please bring a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the instructor to mail your certificate to you. (If you need your card the day of the class, we advise taking the course directly from a local American Red Cross chapter.) --- Accessibility Requests If you require assistance due to disability or other special needs, please let us know in advance so that reasonable accommodations may be made.
