This course from the American Heart Association has been updated to reflect new science based on the 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC.
Heartsaver First Aid Online Part 1 is a self-directed course that uses interactive lessons and videos to teach you comprehensive first aid knowledge. You will learn:
- First aid basics
- Medical emergencies
- Injury emergencies
- Environmental emergencies
First Aid instruction includes bandaging, bleeding, wounds, choking, shock, seizure, fainting, broken bones, sprains, burns, bites, stings, poison, and temperature-related conditions, to name a few.
This program can be completed at work, at home or wherever Internet access is available. It can be used for initial or renewal training.
PART 1 (see below for required Parts 2 and 3, sold separately) includes access to the online lessons, videos, manuals and resources for 2 years! And you can start and stop the course at your convenience until you have finished it at your own pace.
