The First Aid training courses provided by the Emergency Response Consulting Group are perfect for EMS professionals, firefighters, police, paramedics, lifeguards, day care workers, summer camps, athletic trainers and medical assistants. Our courses highlight immediate life-threatening situations, demonstrate how to respond to them quickly and effectively, and offer some perspective about how often these situations occur. Not every injury or sudden illness is life-threatening but immediate action can mean the difference between a quick, complete recovery and a long, painful one. Whether it’s a simple sprain or a serious emergency, our National Safety Council-sponsored First Aid training courses teach you to care for an injury or illness until professional help arrives. We give you all the background information you need to feel confident in the event of an emergency—and help save a life. The National Safety Council has long been recognized as a leader in emergency care training and combined with the instruction provided by the Emergency Response Consulting Group, these programs offer the very latest techniques and meet OSHA standards for emergency care training in the workplace. If you need First Aid training and certification, Emergency Response Consulting Group First Aid training courses offer more training options, customization and the most up-to-date information. The student manual serves as a great on-site reference guide you’ll use again and again and includes a pull-out First Aid Quick Guide.
