About the curriculum

The purpose of this American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED course is to  recertify participants in skills necessary to recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac, breathing, and first aid emergencies. This course recertifies participants in skills needed to give immediate care to a suddenly injured or ill person until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over.

This course emphasizes the need for rapid medical assistance in an emergency and provides instruction on appropriate care for a variety of injuries and sudden illnesses that lay responders may encounter in their workplaces, schools, communities and homes. The program content includes the knowledge and skills necessary for participants to safely identify and give appropriate care, regardless of the type of emergency.

Red Cross certification means that on a particular date an instructor verified that a participant demonstrated competency in all required skills taught in the course. Competency is defined as being able to demonstrate correct decision-making, sequence care steps properly, and proficiently complete all required skills without any coaching or assistance. To complete the course successfully, the participant must:

               Attend all class sessions

               Participate in all course activities

               Demonstrate competency in all required skills

               Successfully participate in an end-of-course scenario

This course reflects the 2010 Consensus on Science for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) and the Guidelines 2010 for First Aid. These treatment recommendations and related training guidelines have been reviewed by the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, a panel of nationally recognized experts in fields that include emergency medicine, occupational health, sports medicine, school and public health, emergency medical services (EMS), aquatics, emergency preparedness and disaster mobilization.
