Who Should Attend: Any local, state, or federal law enforcement officer.

Prerequisite: Students must provide proof of current CPR certification from a national provider such as the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross. This must include Adult CPR, Pediatric CPR, and Automated External Defibrillation.

Based on recognized first responder guidelines, this course provides training in the skills needed to provide the first patient contact in the emergency medical services system. Police officers are often the first on the scene of emergency medical calls and have a responsibility to know what to do. Through instruction in patient assessment, patient care, legal aspects, terminology, diagnostic signs, life threatening emergencies and many other topics, the First Responder will be better prepared to provide better care for the patient.

Special Notes: This course will meet the required training for Intermediate Certification. Registration is restricted to law enforcement personnel only to assist with the demand for this type of training due to POST certification requirements.
