First Aid/CPR CPU

Introduction

In the First Aid/CPR CPU, students practice applying a cold pack to a "victim."

The DEPCO First Aid/CPR CPU offers students intensive computer-based training and hands-on skill practice in basic first aid and CPR procedures. This course prepares students to effectively deal with emergency scene management and render aid for a wide spectrum of injuries.

Students also cover infant, child, and adult CPR techniques. Training to treat cardiac emergencies using an external automated defibrillator is combined with the industry standard audio CPR coach to ensure students will be using the most current recommended procedures. Students follow safety guidelines and recommended protocols to provide first aid or CPR in accordance with accepted legal, ethical, and precautionary practices.
