Health care professionals: Are you a care provider? Do you take care of others? CPR and First-Aid certification is fundamental to the services you provide. Strengthen your value to your patients, yourself, and your employer through ongoing CPR and First-Aid certification.
Employers with safety and OSHA requirements: Provide your staff with the valuable training they’re required to have in an emergency.
Rescue workers: If you are a firefighter, police officer, security guard, or any type of first responder, you need CPR and First-Aid knowledge.

Anyone Can Save A Life
- With Proper Training//
Emergency services first responders are experiencing unprecedented requests for those services, and because of that these life-saving professionals who provide fire and medical aid are often unable to meet the immediate demand for those services. Often services are limited in rural areas. Additional factors such as location, communication challenges, road blockages can prevent first responders from accessing emergencies. In these circumstances one would expect family, friends, coworkers, and community members to jump in and help each other. In many cases the untrained volunteers save many lives; however, in major disasters volunteers also lose their lives while attempting to save others. This is preventable through training.
We believe everyone needs to become a first responder - ANYONE can save a life! And your trained response is tehmost importnat element in any emergency. We train our students to recognize the early signs of stroke, heart attack or cardiac arest, and react with confidence.
Goals of First Aid Training
First aid training helps save lives. It’s that simple. On the job, in your home, or in thecommunity, knowing first aid allows you to help someone who is injured or suddenly illuntil help arrives or they’re able to see a health care provider. In the U.S. every year: two million people are hospitalized because of injuries, 140,000 die from injuries, and 700,000 have strokes.
The Goals of First Aid Include:
• Keeping the victim alive
• Preventing the victim’s condition from getting worse
• Helping promote recovery from the injury or illness
• Ensuring the victim receives medical care
Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Needlesticks and other sharps-related injuries may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens. Workers in many occupations, including first aid team members, housekeeping personnel in some industries, nurses and other healthcare personnel may be at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
This training is designed to provide an awareness or basic understanding of bloodborne pathogens, common modes of their transmission, methods of prevention, and other pertinent information.

The ASHI Pediatric CPR, AED, and First Aid training program provides an ideal training solution for schools, child care providers, youth sports coaches, and others required to learn how to respond to medical emergencies involving children. This versatile program is based upon the 2010 CPR and First Aid Guidelines, Caring for Our Children, 3rd Ed; and other evidence-based treatment recommendations.
Whether employees work in a high-hazard or low-hazard environment, they face a variety of risks. Shock, bleeding, poisonings, burns, temperature extremes, musculoskeletal injuries, bites and stings, medical emergencies and distressed employees in confined spaces are just a sampling of the first aid emergencies which might be encountered in your business. These risks are compounded when employees don't feel well. Their lack of concentration can result in costly injuries.
If your employees aren't prepared to handle these types of injuries on all shifts and their coworkers are left untreated until an ambulance arrives, a victim's condition may worsen and injuries can become far more debilitating, which leads to greater medical costs and lost productivity.
It makes good business sense to provide first aid and appropriate training to all your employees. By making such a minimal investment in keeping your employees safe and well-trained, you could net big returns, along with a competitive advantage. Moreover, it's the law.
Chain of Survival
The term Chain of Survival provides a useful metaphor for the elements of the ECCsystems concept.
The five links in the adult Chain of Survival include:
• Immediate recognition of cardiac arrest and activation of the emergency response system
• Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with an emphasis on chest compressions
• Rapid defibrillation
• Effective advanced life support
• Integrated post-cardiac arrest care
A strong Chain of Survival can improve chances of survival and recovery for victims of heart attack, stroke and other emergencies.
