Emergency First Response is one of the fastest-growing international CPR, AED and first aid training organizations. With more than 56,000 instructors worldwide, Emergency First Response is backed by 48 years of experience in the development and delivery of instructional courses, training materials and educational curricula.


Emergency First Response courses have widespread international acceptance.


Focused on training the lay rescuer, the Emergency First Response approach to training builds confidence in lay rescuers and increases their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency by teaching them the skills they need in a non-stressful learning environment. Participants are also given as much practice as necessary to master and retain these skills.


All courses are supported by self-study manuals, videos, and quick reference cards to enhance learning and allow you start learning right away.

 

Who should take this course?
