ONLINE FIRST AID INTERACTIVE REFRESHER COURSE OVERVIEW
This online First Aid interactive Refresher course is a collection of five engaging first aid situations in which students answer a series of questions about injury prevention and first aid. This innovative tool uses simulations of everyday injuries and medical emergencies in the workplace and at home to enhance learning and understanding of first aid. Content is based on the curriculum and standards covered in Canadian and American government-approved first aid courses.
By means of film, graphics, and decision trees, scenarios outline important factors – like signs, symptoms, and hazards – enabling students to learn, support, and test their own decision making abilities in a given emergency.
This online First Aid Interactive Refresher course provides the opportunity to:
- Reinforce and test your knowledge of first aid and injury prevention
- Practice critical decision-making skills
- Gain confidence to react appropriately in an emergency situation
- Refresh first aid knowledge and skills between certification courses
