Course participants learn simple to follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a nonstressful learning environment. All courses are supported by self-study manuals, videos and quick reference cards to enhance learning and allow you start learning right away.

The following EFR courses are based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care.
- Primary Care (CPR) â This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies.

Youâll learn to how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient, so that you provide every possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.
