Students will learn the essential skills of Primary Assessment, Rescue Breathing, One-man C.P.R., Control of Bleeding, Shock Management, Continuing Circle of Care, Illness Assessment, and Injury Assessment. Skills of patient care are taught in the same sequence they are actually used, which results in the student feeling less anxious about using their skills in a real emergency.
The training is usually conducted over two, four-hour sessions. Workshops are scheduled for daytime and evening sessions. First Aid Coach uses the world's finest training system, Medic First Aid. They learn by seeing, hearing and doing. In fact one recent survey showed that over 97% of students completing our training said that they would step forward and help in a real emergency, versus only 66% of those trained by competing agencies. Our students develop real confidence in their ability to respond and perform these skills in a real crisis.

OSHA regulation 1910.151 states, “…in the absence of an infirmary, clinic, or hospital in near proximity to the workplace, which is used for the treatment of all injured employees, a person or persons shall be adequately trained to render first aid.” Near proximity has been interpreted in most cases, to mean help is less than three minutes away.
