*There are no prerequisites for this course.

*This training has been accepted by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians for 8 hours of trauma continuing education credit.

The course is designed to provide students who have little to no prior medical knowledge or training with the skills needed to identify and treat potentially life-threatening injuries in an austere environment until the arrival of paramedics.

The time to learn how to use your Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK) is not when you or someone you love is seriously injured and in need of care.

Students will learn:

Immediate treatment of severe bleeding wounds
Stabilization of fractures and spinal injuries
Treatment of burn injuries
Tourniquet application
Use of specialized trauma dressings
Environmental injury care

*There are no prerequisites for this course.
