The Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED course incorporates the latest science and teaches students to recognize and care for a variety of first aid emergencies such as burns, cuts, scrapes, sudden illnesses, head, neck, back injuries, heat and cold emergencies, and how to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies. Students who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate for Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED, that is valid for two years.
