Learn to respond to medical emergencies in this Online Immediate Responder First Aid Course

Twenty-three percent of people experiencing a traumatic medical emergency die before first responders arrive because no one on the scene was trained in first aid. This online Immediate Responder First Aid Course will train you to respond to medical emergencies while EMS is on the way.

Online Immediate Responder Course

When someone experiences a medical emergency, there is a silent response gap – the time between the occurrence of the medical emergency and the arrival of professional first responders. During this critical period, those injured can deteriorate and can die before first responders arrive. In the United States, the average response time for EMS is approximately seven minutes in the city and fifteen minutes outside the city.

We need Immediate Responders – people who are at the scene and will step into the Silent Response Gap to provide first aid while waiting on EMS to arrive.

You can be this Immediate Responder and step confidently into the Silent Response Gap and be someone’s hero. In this online course, you will learn to identify and manage life-threatening injuries occurring during accidents, a disaster, an active shooter event, or a bombing.

This engaging course will train you to be an Immediate Responder. Photographs of actual injuries and step-by-step demonstrations are used throughout the course to train you to identify, treat and manage injuries and illnesses. Topics covered in this course include:
