Emergency First Response Care for Children
The Emergency First Response Care for Children course is an innovative CPR, AED and First Aid training course that teaches participants how to provide emergency care for injured or ill children (ages one to eight) and infants less than one year old. Participants learn about the types of medical emergencies that children face, and how they differ from adult conditions. The curriculum also includes the importance of attending to basic emergency situations with children, the emotional aspects of caring for children, secondary care for children, and preventing common injuries and illnesses in children.

Emergency First Response Care for Children course trains the lay rescuer to follow the same priorities of care used by medical professionals. The student masters the priorities and the procedures of patient care for infants and children in a non-stressful learning environment, which reduces the performance anxieties that interfere with learning and enhances confidence when rendering aid in a real medical emergency.

The course includes both primary care (CPR) and secondary care (first aid) skills. The primary care portion of the course prepares the rescuer to render aid to an infant or child with a life-threatening emergency such as choking or cardiac arrest. Secondary care focuses on developing secondary patient care skills and building the rescuer's confidence to render first aid to an infant or child in need when emergency medical services are either delayed or unavailable. The Care for Children course content is based on guidelines from the Pediatric Working Group of ILCOR.

$65 per student (4 hours of class room) - Prerequisite EFR Primary and Secondary Care - Non Divers OK - Max 6 Students

 

EFR Primary and Secondary Care with AED Combined Course
This program simply combines both of the courses from above together and adds the AED (Automated External Defibrillator) training into one class.  This saves you money, and allows you to get all of your CPR/FA certification requirements done in one long class session.  This is NOT a refresher course, this is the course you take if you are not EFR Certified and would like to be, but want to do it all at once.

$100 per student (8 hours of class room) - No prerequisites - Non Divers OK - Max 6 Students

Refresher Course (both CPR and First Aid)
The course includes both primary care (CPR) and secondary care (first aid) skills. This course is designed for returning students or students that need or wish to re-certify in CPR and FA.  The course is structured to re-fresh skills that you have already mastered, but probably have not used in a while.  It is also designed to give you up to date knowledge for any changes to procedure that have occurred since you were last certified.  All CPR and FA certification are only good for 2 years, then re-certification is necessary, this course will meet those need. 

$75 per student (4 hours of class room) - Prerequisite EFR Primary and Secondary Care within the last 4 years, if it's been longer than that you will need to take a full course - Non Divers OK - Max 6 Students
