Statistics show you’re more likely to give first-aid to someone you know than a stranger. When minutes count, you’ll be the person to give the necessary aid to a family member or co-workers before Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrive.
Having the knowledge and skills to act can save or restore someone’s life and prevent you from wondering – what if?
Quick Quiz: You discover a co-worker on the ground in the breakroom and s/he is unresponsive. What do you do next?
A. Check for a pulse
B. Start CPR
C. Phone for help
D. None of the above
Did you remember the correct answer is to C) Phone for help? When you’re the first on the scene in a life and death situation, there is a lot to remember. Reviewing your CPR knowledge and skills regularly is almost as important as taking a CPR class in the first place.
The good news is, it’s easy to get back on track. EI’s combination training through the American Red Cross is an excellent program choice for First- Aid, CPR, and AED training that gives participants the confidence to provide appropriate care quickly in an emergency.
You won’t just watch a video, you’ll get hands on practice with a CPR manikin, simulate the use of an AED machine, identify and learn how to care for bleeding and other skills. You’ll get to practice each skill until you feel comfortable.
While the material taught in this course is serious, it’s taught in a positive, upbeat environment.
Courses are available either in 100% classroom-based or a blended learning option (online and classroom). EI Instructors will tailor the class content based on insight from Company representatives pre-class survey to isolate any areas of concern. This course meets the latest 2010 CPR and ECC Guidelines. All courses will provide 2 year certification.
