FIRST AID AND CPR COURSES

 

Red Cross First Aid and CPR courses will teach you how to protect yourself and those close to you
First aid and CPR skills are applicable in your daily life, both at work and at home. If a medical crisis strikes, prepare yourself to act on, control and manage emergencies as you wait for professional responders to arrive. You can make a difference in helping someone in need.

If you require first aid training for employment outside of the aquatic field, contact the organization that is requiring the certification and ask them which qualifications you need to obtain. LIT cannot advise you about required certifications other than those required for aquatics and lifeguarding.
